Message from Mrs Wadjuelarbinna

My mother said, they close their eyes in church… they go in there and they talk to spirit… this one they call God must be the same one belong you and me, and they started to work out that their spirituality here… it’s a bit different and she couldn’t understand they make a grand building especially to go in on Sunday to talk to this spirit, and every other day of the week they can do whatever they wanted to. And she said, poor silly buggers, they make a house for this one to go in and talk he’s not going to lock up there he’s everywhere, he’s in the
bush, he’s where we’re fishing, he’s where we’re hunting; every second of the day we’re answerable to that spirit.
