Empire of the Summer Moon

Luke 9:1-6

 

Empire of the Summer Moon by  S.C. Gwynn is a book about the conquest of the Native American population in the last years of the 19th century. It shows humanity’s inhumanity towards their fellow human beings on all sides-I see it on the streets each day, I see it in our international news.  I am reminded of a quote:

” Confronted with a cancer or a slum the Pantheist can say, “If you could only see it from the divine point of view, you would realize that this also is God.” The Christian replies, “Don’t talk… nonsense.”   – (Clive Staples) C. S. Lewis, Into The Wardrobe
(Creation is not-God, and sometimes fails to reflect the goodness and perfection of God.  This must be acknowledged; this must be responded to.) I respond by giving some bread, a cup of cold water–the Eucharist each day. Deo Gratias! Thanks be to God!
