Overview

We are all part of the one body, the “body of Christ.” Each follower of Christ is in a way, an organic cell that belongs to it while taking on different denominational or national characteristics. Every cell in the human body will carry the same DNA, and yet cells can be grouped together to form very different organs, each with their unique function and role to play for the benefit of the whole.

What I long for, is to see the Native parts of the Body of Christ in America increasingly find their place(s) in the Body - indigenous expressions included - for the purposes of not only having their dignity restored and for the evangelizing of their own people, but more significantly, so that they can more fully worship their Creator as He intended them to. This is healing! If a part of the Body is missing or is not functioning properly, then the “whole” does not function as it should! That has become my position because of my journey in reconciliation in the divided culture and Church in Ireland and out of my awareness of the wounds my tribe inflicted on the Native Americans because of our colonial exploits. I yearn to see those wounds healed!

In this book you will:

•  Learn more about Colonial and Native American reconciliation issues
•  Gain deeper insights into some of the United States of America’s foundational history
•  Understand more about the strongholds Satan laid into those foundations
•  Be equipped to join with others to intercede and work for the healing of these wounds

“This is a staggering revelation of how our misused Christian faith has been responsible for shaping national policies of domination and exploitation in the British Isles and North America.  It is a wake-up call to heal the wounds of history.”
