In critical times like these it is refreshing to witness people willing to face the truth about dark moments in our history. A “blanket exercise” is just such an experience. It draws individuals into the tragic life and land loss of indigenous people resulting from the invasion of Europeans and the subsequent colonization of their ancient lands. Windermere Union UCC has been committed to telling this story.
On Sunday, July 31st the congregation engaged in this sacred ceremony.
And then, on Friday, October 7th a team from Windermere offered this experience to the entire Florida Conference of the UCC at their Fall Gathering in Vero Beach.
We remain committed to sharing with others this powerful experience.
Just contact the church for further information.
