"Ultima came to stay with us the summer I was almost seven. When she came the beauty of the llano unfolded before my eyes, and the gurgling waters of the river sang to the hum of the turning earth. The magical time of childhood stood still, and the pulse of the living earth pressed its mystery into my living blood."

Sunday Worship Service

This weekend we did our last little bits of shopping and prepared to leave beautiful New Mexico. On Saturday some of the group went and practiced for the worship service that our group was leading at Linda and Scott’s church called Christian Family.
On Sunday we went and all of those who could sing let their voices commingle with the lovely sounds of Linda’s piano and Scott’s guitar. It really was a great experience and all the people at the church really loved it and thought it was such a treat. It was also special because Linda and Scott used to be very involved in the church and they are also worship leaders of Madison.
Afterwards we had a potluck with the members of the church and got to talk to them. I met a fascinating gentleman called Joe who was Native American and lived on the reservation with his daughters. It was a great experience to be able to talk to these people and find out all their views of the area and their experiences with it.
