“‘Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?’ ‘No one, sir,’ she said. ‘Then neither do I condemn you,’ Jesus declared. ‘Go now and leave your life of sin.’” - John 8:10-11 (NIV)
I recently found my university residence hall completely trashed. Chairs were strewn all over; broken eggs were splattered on everything; toilet paper coated most surfaces. I was livid.

Someone who has wronged me

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.”
