In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. - Romans 12:5 (NIV)
I am from a culture in which people do not readily share their deeper concerns or joys. Out of fear of having their “business on the streets,” persons endure silently. And out of fear of not respecting another’s difficulties, they hesitate to celebrate their joys. This situation deprives the community...
My community is a gift from God.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
