HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Nov. 3, 2016-I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU VISITED ME
Compiled by Mercy Junction Council Member Maddie Nix
“Innocence has a single voice that can only say over and over again, “I didn’t do it.” Guilt has a thousand voices, all of them lies.” — Leonard Peltier
As I walk life’s trails
imperiled by the raging wind and rain,
grant, O Great Spirit,
that I may yet always
walk like a man.
―”Cherokee Prayer,” translated by Michael R. Burch
As the protest at Standing Rock gears up to go into the winter let us remember all of the past injustices that led up to this one. Let us remember that the truth, the land and the water is limited and once gone cannot be given back. Let us remember that sacred space is being lost. Let us remember that each day that passes is another injustice within itself.
Today’s Action: If you’re unfamiliar with the Dakota Access Pipeline protest happening now at Standing Rock, do a little online research and read about it. Take action in someway to defend the water defenders, even if it’s as simple as sharing a Facebook post to educate others about this struggle.
