So, there's an event or class on Zoom, but how do you join? If you have a link, it's easy: Just click on the link, and it takes you into the session.
But what if you don't have a link? You just have the meeting ID number and passcode? Here's what you do. In your browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) type in Zoom's web address: zoom.us. Press "Enter" and once you are on Zoom's site, click "Join a meeting." Then you will be prompted to enter the meeting ID number and passcode. The meeting will open after that.
If you're still having difficulties, call the church office (360-452-4781). We'd be glad to help you!

This book study has concluded; however, the links above to the recorded sessions remain valid. You can view the sessions any time on our YouTube channel in our "Christian Formation" playlist.
For some additional information on this topic, you are invited to hear some different voices at the following links:
https://www.ted.com/talks/nikki_sanchez_what_you_can_do_about_your_country_s_ugly_history. The words Nikki Sanchez uses to portray the history of Indigenous/Settler interaction are difficult to hear. However, it is important to recognize the lens through which she sees that history is broadly shared across Indigenous communities and uniquely addressed in "Neither Wolf Nor Dog."
This Minnesota Public Broadcasting podcast (https://www.mprnews.org/story/2019/11/04/uprooted-the-1950s-plan-to-erase-indian-country) traces the development and impact of the 50’s era Termination and Relocation acts passed by congress in an effort to address the “Indian Problem.”
