Summer Heat and History

Posted by Pastor Linda McCollough on June 21, 2022 at 5:00 PM

The park was filled with people, kids running and playing. Loud speakers saying words and invitations.

Tents around the edge of our park, orgs and history banners to help us understand more. 

The roots of Red Wing, washing over the liberation, freedoms juxtaposed to limitations and frayings.

History, herstory. What was your experience? Did you pass along the stories from the generation prior?

How now shall we live?

A day of heat, spilling the summer air as we walked through the park, walked through the cars lining the streets of downtown. 

Gathering. Listening. Eating. Dancing. Sitting. Staying. Watching. Glancing. Talking.
