the salem witch trials memorial

over the past month i’ve started visiting the salem witchcraft memorial to think and pray before sunday sermons. since the memorial is bounded by one of salem’s historic cemetaries i often pray that through the preaching of the Word God will bring life to the dead. today, as i sat on sarah good’s bench, i also prayed that my preaching would never produce the kind of xenophobia and hatred that inspired the memorial i so enjoy.

  1. I’m curious, xenophobia? How did that inspire the witch trial memorial?

    • from what i’ve heard, hatred of the economic other and hatred of the enemy inspired many of the accusations of witchcraft.

      maybe i’m wrong though.
