Sand Creek Pilgrimage
Photo from the cover of the bulletin of the opening worship service
Tomorrow morning our Rocky Mountain Annual Conference will load up in 13 buses to take a pilgrimage to the site of the Sand Creek Massacre, which occurred 150 years ago this year. We take this pilgrimage in remembrance of and reverence for the men, women, and children who died and whose bodies where desecrated. And in repentance for the fact that the leader of the massacre was a Methodist minister. There is no way to make up for this atrocity.
God of justice and healing, open our eyes, our ears, our hearts, to the moving of your Spirit. Make us worthy to walk on this sacred ground. Come, Spirit, come, and show us the way. Amen.
Why We Are Going to Sand Creek
