From Sunning to Serving


I sat next to a soft-spoken woman this morning on my flight from Minneapolis to Amsterdam and then on to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She was on her way from North Dakota to serve alongside Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta.


My sister sojourner had been building up the courage for her journey for several years. She postponed her trip last year to travel to Florida instead.


She finally committed to her pilgrimage in September, strongly sensing that “serving instead of sunning” was a worthier calling.


I couldn’t agree more. I suspect she is about to be richly blessed as she is a blessing to the poorest of the poor. This is how spiritual calculus works all over the world.


DO less. BE more
