Meditation Monday – Choosing Christ or the World.

Submitted by Godspace
by Christine Sine Do we really choose between the world and Christ as between two conflicting realities absolutely opposed? Or do we choose Christ by choosing the world as it really is in him, and encountered in the ground of our own personal freedom and of our love? Do we really renounce ourselves and the […]

Churachandpur, India

I have been in the village sielmat, India for the past couple weeks - it's that little chunk of land in northeast India that looks as though it should belong to China.

We have worked with many kids and the people of our little town Lushnje. We have learned some of the Albanian language. We have consumed obscene amounts of very strong coffee. We have met people that will have an impact on our lives forever.   And now we have to leave.   I can’t deny that the 3 months w
