Week 9, Classmate Response to Antonia DeBoer:

November 26, 2007

I appreciated Antonia’s insight into what the Maori people may have felt at the loss of their lands to the hands of colonizers. Her agricultural background provides a larger window into the loss that the Maori people experienced.  The way she elaborated on this was helpful. I agree with her, “It pains me that Jesus was seen as a land-hungry god instead of as the Savior who gave up his life for the Maori.”
