It’s wonderful to be home!
I’m so thankful for this space in which to reconnect with friends and family up and down the East Coast. It feels like I’m re-joining the “day-to-day-ness” of life together with you all – in that basic, wonderfully prosaic way in which life together is lived out – and I love it!
A big piece of my re-entry happened this past Sunday, when I had the chance to worship at my home church, New Hope Fellowship. What a joy it was to be back with these longtime brothers and sisters of mine, beloved friends who have walked with me through some hugely formative experiences over the years. (The best part is remembering that we don’t have to squeeze it all into just a few days!) After a bit more traveling over the next few weekends, I look forward to settling back in Westchester and rejoining life here – life at its most routine day-to-day-ness. =)
In this short-and-sweet post, then, I want to say THANKS to you, my “sending church” congregation. Thank you for remaining present with me, in large ways and small, during my two years in Nepal. And I look forward to sharing that presence more fully now, in the weeks and months to come!
