Pray for Grassy Narrows’ community and forest. Pray that clearcut logging practices are abandoned permanently and that the Ontario government understands the environmental impact that this practice is having in the river system and the fish used by this First Nation community.
Grassy Narrows First Nations, a community of about 1,500 near Kenora, is concerned that clearcut logging will increase mercury levels in local fish, which is a traditional dietary staple.
“Let’s hear it from Sky, with Earth joining in, and a huge round of applause from Sea. Let Wilderness turn cartwheels, animals, come dance, put every tree of the forest in the choir” (Psalm 26: 11-12)
