cry the wounded land

Walk gently on the land, ask them what I had been saying.
What if they don’t know anymore?
Ask them to ask me. I will remind them. And I will tell them what I am saying now.
The plan was very simple Mark. I had been saying things on and to this land before you arrived. I called you here to hear those things. My plan was that you would ask them what I had been saying and they would teach you. And then they, intrigued by your humility would have asked what you had
been hearing where you came from. It was to be an example to the world of how to meld two cultures. But it STILL hasn’t happened.
Both sides are implicit in this. Both sides have faults. This isn’t about blame or even repentance. I want to wind the clock back to what should have happened. I want to rewind this whole scenario back to the beginning, back to when you first arrived so that you can do what should have happened
You need this, the land needs this. This is about what should have happened back then but didn’t. The land is cursed when you curse it with blood. That’s what David Garratt was telling you. But none of you really understand what it means. Neither side does. You need to ask me. But first you must
come walking gently on to the land. You came after them. Ask them what I was saying before you got here. DOING SO RESTORES TO THEM THE RESPONSIBILITY TO HEAR ME.
I want them to hear me, not blame you. I want them to teach you what they hear from me. That’s how I wanted it to start. AND TOGETHER YOU WOULD HAVE PAINTED A CLEARER PICTURE OF ME IN THIS PLACE. There’s still time. But not much. The repentance is good but it’s not the actual purpose I called the two peoples together.
Does that mean they should be the bosses?
Nobody should be the bosses. This was to be the melding of
two peoples. Each learning from the other. But you wanted to do all the teaching. That never works Mark. NEVER. First you needed to listen. Because you were the guests it was your place to listen first - the conqueror comes shouting, the guest comes listening. If you had listened they would have too.
I wish I’d never heard all this God.
Yes quite. I’ve been saying this since you first arrived Mark
and I’ll keep saying it until someone listens. As you rightly
pointed out the church then wasn’t listening, do you think
they’re listening now?
God I’m not even going to answer that.
That’s certainly the safest option Mark.
