Take Your Stick
I just returned from 2 weeks in Ethiopia and Kenya. The next several blog entries are observations, learning and Holy Spirit moments from my time there.
At the conclusion of our time in Kenya, Archbishop Obare asked us to stay with them for dinner, “and then”, he said, “you may take your stick.” In other words, we were free to pick up our walking stick and leave. Their blessings would accompany us on our journey home.
When people come to us or leave us, they can feel loved or neglected. It all depends on how we receive them and how we send them on their way.
We were both received and sent with love by our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia and Kenya.
What a blessing—one to pay forward back home.
DO less. BE more.
