When Donald Trump got elected President, I said I would build a bigger table.
From the Minister
Hello members and friends of CVUUS,–It is so good to be here for this ministry exchange. Middlebury is a town I have visited so many times over the past 25 years. My husband’s family has a summer home in Westport on Lake Champlain, where we often spend our vacations and holidays.
The peace and beauty of this land is exquisite. During my journey here from Maine, driving through the mountains and valleys was hypnotic as the sunlight splashed through the transforming trees. NPR was sharing how high the quality of life is in Vermont for so many people. Now that I am living here for three weeks, I am wondering about the native heritage of this land. Vermont’s Native History began nearly 13,000 years ago with Paleo-Indians and your state has recognized a number of Abenaki Tribes over the years. So I honor and bow to the spirits of the land and the Abenaki people who stewarded this land before European colonization.
