For centuries Indigenous Nations and people endured a holocaust ofunimaginable proportions, much of the suffering and betrayal comingfrom those who claimed to be representing the Christian God. If we desirereconciliation and friendship with Native people and Nations, how do we buildthose bridges? Knowing that historically we have not loved our first neighborswell, how do we now communicate grace? Can we learn from the tragedies andfailures of the past? Are we willing to pave the way of reconciliation with ourtears? These questions and more we ponder throughout this book.What we are learning is the gift of many friends representing many tribes andcultures who have graciously and generously shared their stories and theirhearts with us. Now we pass along some of our gleanings to you. We hope itwill set you to thinking and even unpacking your baggage, to sort it out andpack again-wherever you might be going in this life. God help us all to travellight and may we always move to the music of God's extravagant grace.About the Farrants...We are simply two very ordinary people given the extraordinaryprivilege of spending time with people of other cultures whohave been and are still our teachers.
