Like living stones, let yourselves be built into a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. - 1 Peter 2:5 (NRSV)
As an Upper Room intern who is blind, I have shared laughter and tears with our Braille readers. While I initially contacted them about subscriptions, together we found an unbreakable bond in Christ Jesus. These conversations reminded me that we are called to be a holy priesthood in Christ. But...
We can imitate Christ by helping to bear one another’s burdens.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
