October 4 Rev. Wanda DanielA Warrior’s Courage, A Healer’s Heart
These times in which we live have revealed much hidden yet firmly rooted and growing. Now we see clearer, or maybe we don’t. Why is it important to face each other and see with courage and compassion?!? Both qualities are needed if we’re to find ways to live together on Earth, open our hearts and minds, hear vastly different viewpoints, AND learn from each other. Yes, a warrior’s courage and a healer’s heart dance together, hearing the cries, and responding with a willingness to nourish life.
October 11 Scott Prinzing Beyond Ready: Indigenous Peoples Day!
Billings is the biggest city in the state of Montana. It is located less than ten miles from the Crow Indian Reservation, its own boundaries were once within that reservation. It is also the only large city in Montana that has not recognized Indigenous Peoples Day in early October, a date still recognizing Christopher Columbus and his “discovery” of the continent. Why is this the case? When will the city of Billings be ready to join the rest of the state in honoring our original residents and their descendants, our neighbors and fellow citizens? How did we get here? Why do we honor Columbus? And why are we reluctant to honor the Indigenous People of North America?
