Apache Stronghold -- Finding Love in Lexington, Kentucky

"Love is who you are. When you don't operate according to love, you are outside of being. You're not being real. When you love, you are acting according to your deepest being, your deepest truth." --Richard Rohr
The Stronghold Sacred Caravan stopped for rest and prayers in Lexington Kentucky, building extended family and spiritual strongholds on the way to DC to connect with the Poor People’s Campaign. This is the essential work if we want to see a Moral Revival -- to remember who we are ! Love is who we are ! The colonizers’ moral narrative is full of lies and deception influencing who we think we are -- trying to get us to think we are our jobs, we are what we produce and consume, we are what we accumulate or we are the power we gain. This is not who we are.

Wendsler Nosie Sr. shared a story with us this morning he learned from Rev. John Mendez -- about an Eagle that thinks it is a chicken and so acts like a chicken. It cannot fly. But when thrown over a cliff it remembers who it is and soars high.

The Stronghold Sacred Caravan is soaring as eagles and as Love. They are reminding those of us in the Poor People’s Campaign that the essential work is this spiritual work -- remembering who we are - before we jump to the policy and issues organizing work.
