Prayer Circle for Peace and Healing

January 5, 2017

On New Year’s Eve, Nick was honored to speak at the Prayer Circle for Peace and Healing, hosted by the Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA).

NARA is a local non-profit that provides social services and health care to our native communities. Founded in 1970, NARA has seven locations throughout Portland.

The Prayer for Peace and Healing event celebrated the diversity of traditions, faiths, and cultures in Portland.

Nick joined Rev. Hardy from the Highland Christian Center, County Commissioner Loretta Smith, our very own Asena Lawrence, and many others. He shared his perspectives on the City of Portland’s role in honoring and respecting all people in our community. Nick also gave a short prayer about supporting each other during these difficult and uncertain times.

Special thanks to NARA and its Executive Director, Jackie Mercer, for hosting an inspiring event!
