The First Annual John Roberts Feast Day

The First Annual John Roberts Feast Day was held at St.David’s Episcopal Church on the Wind River Reservation. It was a glorious day celebrating the life of John Roberts who devoted 66 years of ministry to the Shoshone and Arapaho people.

The speakers for the event were: Rev. Roxanne Friday, Bishop Paul-Gordon Chandler, and Willie Le Clair, an elder of the Shoshone Tribe.

Native American drum circle, and flutist played music that filled not just the church, but filled our souls.

Bishop Chandler commissioned me to write an icon of Rev.Roberts which would be blessed on the feast day. it was beautiful to hear the blessing, and watch members of the church cedar the icon.

The afternoon ended with a traditional feast.

I am already looking forward to the 2nd John Roberts Festival.
