We’d Better Let Sleeping Gods Lie S01E07

February 25th, 2017

In the winter of 1941, God and the Devil came to the Belcher Islands; an isolated Inuit community on the south east corner of Hudson's Bay. 

Years later two visitors would knock on a door.

Tom Martin, an Anglican priest from Great Whale River, and John Sperry, Anglican Bishop of the Arctic, were making their rounds, offering eucharist services to shut-ins in the community. When they came to one mans door, Sperry went inside; discovered that man sleeping, and asked his companion if he thought they should wake the old man up for communion.

"Let's not," the priest decided. "We'd better let sleeping gods lie."
