Spend enough time with sinners to ruin your reputation with religious people!!!
12There is a way that appears to be right,
but in the end it leads to death.
My grandfather came to Canada at age 29, he was a pastor for a “prominent” denomination.
He worked as a “missionary” on the Cardston Reserve, during the time that the government and churches started the residential schools.
He was arrested three times because he and my grandma harboured First Nations children preventing them from being taken from their families.
The denomination that he worked for kicked him out, he was arrested by “Indian agents, and scorned by society and friends. He never stopped bringing the Gosple to his native friends, he never stopped loving them, his house was always full of them!
When grandpa passed away, his family rented a community hall in Lethbridge to have his funeral. The only “white people to attend were his family, but there were over 400 First Nations people, all in full ceremonial dress!
Grandpa, taught me how to hunt, fish and how to love people!
15…”but the prudent give thought to their steps.”
