Mary Garrigan of the Rapid City Journal provides a report that gives voice to the Oglala people whose six churches are being closed by Episcopal Church bureaucrats in New York City. Here is the quote that squeezes the heart:
...the loss of nine churches at once “boggles the mind,” said Lorri Ann Two Bulls. She grieves the possible closure of her home church, but she worries especially about the loss of St. John’s Church in Pine Ridge, a historic building that served as an overflow hospital during the Wounded Knee Massacre. “The blood of the people who died there are still in the floorboards of that church,” she said.
