Native American Land Acknowledgement

 

A Native American Land Acknowledgement Priority Plan has been developed.  You can find it HERE.  This is first step on a journey of seeking reconciliation and healing with the Indigenous People.  You will also find a list of Queries for Native American Land Acknowledgement HERE.  As Todd Barrett suggested, we should allow the Spirit to take us along this journey.

Love in Action

 “Sympathy feels bad about a situation. Solidarity joins in as a co-laborer to change the situation. Sympathy calls for love without risk. Solidarity calls for risk as love. Sympathy centers the comfort and timetable of those who benefit from a system of difference. Solidarity calls for a revolution of value in a system in which we build a loving and just common life together.”

- Dante Stewart
