Lenore Three Stars
Lenore was born on Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where her father was born. Her mother is Minnecoujou Lakota from the Cheyenne River Reservation, S.D. She earned her BA from Fort Lewis College in Colorado, then completed a civil rights career in Seattle, Washington. She retired and moved to Spokane to be an active unci (grandmother) to her two takojas (grandkids), and began her graduate studies. Lenore earned an M.A. through the North American Institute of Indigenous Theological Studies, at Portland Seminary/George Fox University in Oregon. Lenore services as a facilitator for the annual Journey to Mosaic, a faith-based racial reconciliation experience in the Pacific Northwest. She speaks and writes from a Native perspective on decolonizing theology and racial reconciliation, and serves on boards related to her interests in justice, the local community, Indigenous issues, and a discipleship of creation care.


Kristyn Komarnicki
Director, Oriented to Love, Christians for Social Action

“A Story of Becoming”

This Tuesday we join with SPU In One Room’s Transforming Conflict Through Curiosity Conversation. Guest speaker, Kristyn Komarnicki, is director of dialogue and convening at Christians for Social Action (CSA). The creator of CSA’s Oriented to Love dialogues about sexual/gender diversity in the church, Kristyn gathers Christians of different sexual orientations, gender identities, and theological convictions together so they can begin to know, understand, and love each other, in search of a unity that is deeper than agreement. Kristyn says she enjoys helping people have more generative conversations, reframing conflict not as something to be feared or avoided, but as an opportunity for maturing in Christ.

Join Us Wednesday Nights for Group

This is not your standard “songs and sermon” program. Group is a holistic service, an immersion of the body, mind, and heart in the Christian story.
