in reality...a party crashed and a temporary relationship formed before the "greedy" ones came!
Remembering the thankfulness of a band of religious zealots for God who has survived their first year on this land. 1/2 of their group had died in a year....Think about only having half of your family by this time next year.
These are not the people who eventually came for greed...power.
They did not have slaves among them,
they came with bibles in hand...
pining to worship the Creator of the universe
Well they'll always be political restrictions on this earth.
One day...after this earth and heaven has passed away...
We'll be able to worship the Lord...
in spirit and truth...
decedents of Native Americas, decedents of slaves, decedents of pilgrims, all
will bow their knee and say...
"Jesus Christ is Lord of All"
I'm thankful I can say that in my house... without being arrested.
