Today we celebrate the Indigenous People’s of the world.
In honor of Indigenous Peoples Day, our Monday Meditation is “We Are Not Guests” by UUA staff member Alicia Forde. It reads, in part:
“Am I a guest here. Here in this House. Are you?
Are we guests here. Here in this House. And, whose House do we inhabit?
In the small world of our lives the borders between us: easements, fences, gates, hedges—serve to delineate, to separate us. To remind us of where my property begins and ends…
Whose House do we inhabit?
For we are not hosts. We are not owners.
Nor are we guests.
What, then, is our responsibility?”
