INDIGENOUS REFLECTIONS ON CHRISTIANITY – SACRED LAND FILM PROJECT  This episode focuses on the question “ What are the ecological implications of Christianity?” Onondaga Faithkeeper Oren Lyons, Native Hawaiian historian Davianna McGregor, Australian Aboriginal elder and former Catholic priest Patrick Dodson, and Anishinaabe author and activist Winona LaDuke offer their insights into the history of Christianity in relation to indigenous peoples and ecosystems around the world. 14 minutes  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoxNyNWFvZw&feature=youtu.be  Another episode asks “What good is an Apology if actions do not follow?” Since this is the 30th anniversary of the UCC 1986 apology, this is a timely question to ponder.                         https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4C36_CgsQ4
