Church Matters Podcast: Episode 72:
So You Want Better Relations? A Re-telling of Mark 10 in a First Nations Perspective
Guest: Soren Mennohawk, storyteller
Soren MennoHawk is part preacher, part teacher, and storyteller in the tradition of Canada’s indigenous people, and full time follower of Jesus, the Waymaker.
At a summer gathering in Vancouver, Soren Mennohawk connected with a number of church folk from the Fraser Valley. He took time to explore their relationships with the local First Peoples. At one point, an older gentleman took Soren aside and said with conviction, “Unless we start addressing the issue of land, honestly stating what has happened – that most of BC is not 'treatied' territory – we will never approach reconciliation.” Moved by that comment, Soren did a little historical reflection and wrote a translation of an infamous Jesus-story from Mark chapter 10, 17-31.
