Meeting Chief Polin – The Rev. Susan Gilpin

Scripture: Deuteronomy 10:17-22

As we mark Indigenous People’s Day, The Rev. Susan Gilpin introduces us to the history of Chief Polin of the Abenaki, whose history is a part of the Presumpscot River, woven into the land in the Foreside. In him, we are reminded of the gifts of creation God promises, the justice God calls us to in Deuteronomy… and the legacy those of us of European ancestry have to contend with in living up to these gifts, and this mission we share in.
