It has been 8 years since I first went to Africa and visited with our Lutheran partners there.  Since then I have been back many times.  I have been a to visit India and see our churches mercy work there in partnership with others.  I have been to flood sites and tornado damaged towns to see how the compassion of God’s people is poured out.  cheap nba jerseys I have also stood alone with folks in crisis when it seemed there was no where to turn and I can tell you, partnerships and a presence, even if there is nothing that can be physically done, is infinitely preferable to being alone.

God made us that way.  Ever since he saw that “it was not good for the man to be alone”, human cheap nfl jerseys beings have been “in community”.  Christians call it the “body of Christ” and Do it of is not a metaphor.  It is an organic reality created by God’s mercy and connected with the suffering, death and resurrection of His son.  Brain This little site is designed to help Contrast us to see how the body of Christ functions, communicates, works, struggles and cares up here, in this part of God’s creation.  Up North, where you might see the Northern Lights, we are hoping to give glimpses of God’s light shining in our hearts as we “live together as Christ’s people”.  We hope to hear from those people in the months and years ahead as paths “cross” and partnerships are formed and we cheap jerseys from China witness, show mercy and wholesale NFL jerseys share our “life Miami Dolphins Jerseys together” in Christ.
