Wesley's Annual Fall Seminar
You have probably heard about the infamous “Trail of Tears,” in which Cherokee peoples were forcibly removed from their homelands in the southern United States. But did you know that a similar removal, called “The Trail of Death” occurred in our area? In 1838, a group of over 860 Potawatomi were forced to travel over 650 miles from northern Indiana to eastern Kansas. Their path included parts of east central Illinois, passing through Danville, Sidney, and Monticello.
In recent years, former Senior Pastor and Wesley member Paul Unger has been on a journey to understand what the victims experienced, and how others in the area responded. He will talk about his experiences in meeting with people who have been affected by the removal and offer some reflections on how we might relate to these events today.
