Thanks for stopping in. Pour yourself a cup o' jo, take a load off your feet, and check out what's here. You are looking at my ramblings about issues of faith, life and culture—they are my own and are not necessarily shared by those with whom I work, live or otherwise engage.

My journey has led my family and me across the country where I have been introduced to a lot of people and a lot of different ways of doing things. One passion, though, runs through all these experiences: building beloved and sustainable community. "Sustainable" community is kind of a strange notion, as communities (people) change constantly, and things are always in motion. So, the latest chapter of my life has led me to the notion of "impermanence"—not an idea that comes naturally in a culture that likes to build monuments to our greatness for future generations to view and admire. But, I'm trying to practice my awareness of impermanence—the idea that nothing is permanent, nothing is forever, and things are always in flux.

Feel free to share your comments and engage in any conversation that may be happening here, but just know that I do reserve the right to delete any spam or anything I deem inappropriate or offensive. I look forward to dialoguing with anyone who cares to dialogue!

Peace and blessings,

Migrant Trail Walk

20130527-090840.jpg
Today we gather at Southside Presbyterian Church, packing trailers, and getting things ready to head off to Sásabe, Mexico where we will break bread and begin our 75 mile trek to Tucson on the Migrant Trail Walk. We walk to remember those who have died trying to seek freedom from poverty, oppression, and a myriad of other things. They come out of hope. Yet, it has been said, for every human remains recovered in the desert, there are as many as 10 never found. Since 2000 more than 2,500 human remains have been recovered in the southern deserts of Arizona alone.

I can’t help but ask, based on my previous post, if I walk out of selflessness or out of self interest to say, “I did this.” I try to enter this experience with an open heart and mind, praying for the health and wellbeing of all participating and those who are also walking the desert but whom we cannot see and who do not have the safety of a caravan of support vehicles (complete with an ample supply of water and “toilet tents”).

An interesting group of people gather, from an array of political, theological, and cultural perspectives. Prayers welcome.
