June 19, 2016. Pastor Keith relates the gospel story, of Jesus’ encounter with a man possessed by demons on the other side of the Sea of Galilee, to the recent trip to the Rosebud Indian Reservation in South Dakota. The annual trip to the reservation over many years has fostered a building up of love and care with the people there, and something tangible has been accomplished, sharing the hope and healing that Jesus provides with the Lakota Sioux people.
