LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT for BCMC
Compiled by Florence Schloneger from words by Mark Charles and VT #878 Feb 2021
As we do on the first Sunday of each month,
we acknowledge that we worship
on the land of the Kanza, Osage, and Wichita.
We thank them for their care and respect for this land
and acknowledge the injustice of their forced removal.
We ask the Spirit to heal our histories
and find new paths of right relationships with them
and all of creation.
