new column

New column is up: on baptism, friendship, the importance of story, and the incredible life of my friend Abdi. This was such a good opportunity to remember his life, and to really spend some time in missing him. This happened several years ago, but it feels like today.

 

I have been reading a lot lately about living in solidarity with the poor. It’s amazing how unreachable that sounds, until you actually become invested in people who are so very different from you. It has been a gift to be able to look back and see how intertwined and enmeshed my life has become, heartbreaks and triumphs and all, with some of the very least of these.
