Let us not tire of preaching love; it is the force that will overcome the world. Let us not tire of preaching love. Though we see that waves of violence succeed in drowning the fire of Christian love, love must win out; it is the only thing that can. -Oscar Romero
Lord God, you have called your servants to ventures of which we cannot see the ending, by paths as yet untrodden, through perils unknown. Give us faith to go out in good courage, not knowing where we go, but only that your hand is leading us and your love supporting us. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
I originally created this blog in order to keep in touch/update the many wonderful people in my life while I studied for a semester in Central America. It then served (sporadically) to keep me in touch with folks back home as I returned to El Salvador for a year post-graduation.
Now I am a Lutheran Volunteer Corps volunteer in Detroit, MI. I am embarking on a year of urban farming and community education. And I can only imagine that, wherever I find myself for the long haul (and who knows?), I am likely creating yet one more place that can consider "back home."
