The arduous poverty of the settlement is seen, not as an unfortunate interim, but as of spiritual value in itself. I grew up believing that my family had long held a deep rejection of all things Catholic. I was not meant to consider a migration to this other religious geography. My experience of the Plains is that the geography does not easily serve to segregate groups. One must work very hard not to notice what the neighbors are up to.

That my experience is not atypical of the Diaspora is shown in the frequent statements that what remains important about the Plains pioneers are various sets of values expressed in the stories of westward movement and seen to continue in present descendants. These embodied values vary from work ethic  to the importance of church. He then applies this construct to the life of the Church. Let not the. Dawson Church be discouraged today. There are people in every state in the union, Canada ,and some foreign countries that have been converted in the Dawson EUB Church.
So the influence of the Dawson Church has gone forth and is still going forth over this great country of ours. Here he analogically adapts a Plains pioneering ideology from westward expansiveness to an expansiveness of a spiritual identity. Gottlieb Heim my 3rd great-grandfather was a very stern man who left a strong mark on succeeding generations.
Haller as spiritual leader. His wife Margaret was of a completely different disposition and could laugh until tears rolled down her cheeks. Heims evidently were noted for the occasional Margaret-like indecorum. My junior high Sunday school class was composed of mostly Heim cousins. But one Sunday this elderly, small and fragile woman took each of us by the shoulders in turn, sitting us firmly in our chairs.

I believe that I am most strongly marked by the legacy of Margaret. We have company! What has this to do with God? It is vitally important to a healthy theology, a healthy relationship with God and healthy relationships with one another. If we chart this geography of play on the terrains of Pennsylvania and Nebraska what I find interesting is that while there are stories about play in Blooming Grove  they are rare. For me, the explanation is the sky. The geography of the Plains provided vast metaphorical geographies for the exuberant release and exploration of play as an essential part of living.
Play in PA feels vertical, enclosed. It feels like play within limitations. Play in Nebraska feels horizontal, open. These are very different geographic metaphors. Thus far differences in the mapping of spiritual spaces have contrasted Nebraska and Pennsylvania. The small family farms that supported strong and vibrant small town communities are no longer feasible. Harlan Heim provided a similar tank filled with ice and vast quantities and varieties of soda.
These were events peopled by well-known faces, governed by deeply ingrained, very normal, daily experienced relationships. My early assumptions were that church was also a communal expression of the extended family. Life, I thought, was to be one endless stream of large numbers of people gathering at church to eat and play.

This book was so good that I read it in one sitting. A Viking raid separates Arietta's sister, Gwyn from her home. Ten years later, Gwyn returns home with her Viking family. She apparently was assimilated to be a Norsewoman, which infuriates Arietta. Arietta can't believe how welcoming the villagers are to the Vikings.
She reluctantly finds herself drawn to Gwyn's brother- in-law, Wulfric, despite her impending betrothal to Edwynn. The story deals with issues of forgiveness, different cultures coexisting together, and trust in God. I highly recommend this book.
