The Mayans

Today we spent our time learning about, seeing, and experiencing Mayan spirituality. The Presbiterio Kaqchikel combines both Mayan and Christian sensibilities in a thoughtful and careful way, respecting both traditions. They were pleased to show us their brand new water filtration system, bringing reliable clean water to their community. It made us wonder what great opportunities were lost in the United States in the treatment we gave to Native Americans. Different points of view help us to see our own spirituality in greater depth, and help us to see areas we might otherwise miss.
