Mark writes from CrossWalk America, now in Kansas

OKLAHOMA WEATHER-REPORT +
CALIFORNIA BOOK-SIGN-ING EVENT

MY GOOD-FRIEND IN BERKELEY+OAKLAND, CA---WHO
TRACES HIS ANCESTRY BACK TO THE BLACKFEET-INDIANS OF
MONTANA---ASK'D ME TO PLEASE TELL THE AMERICAN-INDIAN
STORY WHEN I WAS IN OKLAHOMA---ALSO CALL'D "NATIVE
AMERICA" ...
WELL, I'M IN KANSAS NOW, BUT WILL TELL THE STORY
ANY-WAY:

AMERICAN-INDIANS HAVE SEVERAL NAMES-FOR-"GOD" --- JUST
LIKE CHRISTIANS DO: NAMES LIKE "WAKAN-TANKA" +
"TUNKASHILA" + JUST-SIMPLY "GREAT SPIRIT" ...
WELL, WE WERE IN TULSA,OKLAHOMA LAST WEEK-END:
DRIVE-ING OUT MONDAY-MORNING, BACK TOWARD WHERE WE HAD
STOP'D WALK-ING, THERE IN TULSA WAS LIGHT RAIN-FALL +
A HEAVY DOWN-POUR-ING OF RAIN A BIT NORTH-WEST OF THE
CITY ...
THEN APPROX. 24 HOURS
LATER---TUESDAY-MORNING---THERE WAS A
REPEAT-PERFORMANCE OF RAIN-FALL-ING-DOWN-IN-TULSA,
PLUS SOME STRONG-WINDS, BLOW-ING DOWN SOME LOCAL
STRUCTURES THERE, INCLUDE-ING A FERRIS-WHEEL-RIDE
@ AN AMUSEMENT-PARK + A ROOF @ A BAPTIST-CHURCH ...
AND GUESS WHAT ?? THO TULSA IS A BIG CITY,
THOSE STRONG-WINDS HAPPEN'D, LIKE, IN THE SAME AREA
WHERE WE HAD BEEN, LIKE, 24 HOURS BEFORE ...

THE NEWS-PAPER HEAD-LINE WAS: "STORM SURPRISES TULSA"
... THE STORY SAY'D: "POWERFUL STORM EARLY TUESDAY
... FROM 11TH TO
31ST STREETS,
HARVARD TO YALE
AVENUES"
... LIKE, EXACT-LY WHERE WE WERE: OUR HOST-CHURCH WAS
@ HARVARD AVENUE + 27TH STREET, + AN OTHER CHURCH
WHERE WE APPEAR'D SUNDAY-EVENING WAS @ YALE AVENUE +
APPROX. 21ST STREET ...
SO I RECKON THIS: PERHAPS THIS "GREAT SPIRIT"
--- THIS "WIND-OF-GOD" --- MIGHT HAVE BEEN TRY-ING TO
SAY SOME-THING ... AND SO NOW I WONDER: WAS ANY-BODY
LISTEN-ING ??

FOLKS: I RECKON IT'S AS THEY SAY:
" GOD IS STILL
SPEAKING"

-----UNITED CHURCH OF CHRIST

*** BOOK-SIGN-ING ***
SPEAK-ING OF SPEAK-ING: THE PASTOR @ OUR
HOST-CHURCH IN OKLAHOMA CITY WAS SPEAK-ING AT A
LOCAL UNIVERSITY RECENT-LY + HIS SPEECH WAS SO-GOOD,
FOLKS PICK'D IT UP + PUT IT ON THE INTERNET + SO
THOUSANDS OF OTHER FOLKS DID-SEE IT + DID-GIVE LOTS OF
FEED-BACK---BOTH POSITIVE+NEGATIVE: SO HE EXPANDED IT
TO BOOK-LENGTH + THE BOOK WAS PUBLISH'D THIS
YEAR(2006)
AND SOON HE WILL BE IN BERKELEY,CA TO PROMOTE HIS
BOOK:

SO I WANT TO INVITE ALL MY BERKELEY+OAKLAND FRIENDS TO
GO

PLACE: CODY'S BOOK-STORE, 2454 TELEGRAPH AV,
BERKELEY
