Prayers for Peacemakers, September 9, 2015

Give thanks that the Aamjiwnaang First Nation is speaking
out about the damage that “Chemical Valley” in the Sarnia area is doing to its
nation as well as to the other living creatures.  Christian Peacemaker Teams recently
participated in a “Toxic Tour” as an act of solidarity with the Aamjiwnaang
people.   Like ninety other First Nations in Canada, including Grassy Narrows, Aamjiwnaang First Nation is unable to
drink the water on its land.

The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish.
Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, I pray, save my life!” Psalms 116: 3-4

When Snow Came to Oak Flat

A snowfall in Oak Flat has brought families out to enjoy the land, land that continues to be under threat from mining companies.

A path winds through the rocky terrain of Oak Flat. There are green bushes along the side of the path and a bright blue sky.

Mercy, not Sacrifice

And Spirit counselled me, “Go and learn what this means: I desire mercy and not sacrifice.” (Matthew 9:13)
