|World Religion Day devotional|
it feels like the world is always opening itself with more and new wonderful opportunities to serve, love, readjust the lines that keep people socially separated, and most of all learn how to be a better human being.
with every new soul who crosses my path i am treading a path of justice, letting my heart burn with loving-kindness, and thinking of a way to be of service to him/her..
nairobi is a city in which to thrive. many kenyans are involved in social action. many ngo's are here with good intentions and high-minded endeavors. many inter-racial couples and adoptions lend to it feeling progressive and integrative. and many hard-working, humble souls imbue our lives with radiant acquiescence.

|Alvin & his little brother who came for a devotional|
sometimes i brought a little something to give the kids, like a notebook or a pencil. they were so grateful and received it in a humble manner. once we knew their names well they welcomed our affection and even looked forward to seeing us! when we told them we were moving they were saddened. by this time i had one of the boys' mom's number and they had come to our home for a devotional. they expressed hope of seeing us again on 'their side' of the city -- we hope to cross their paths when helping a youth with his proposed service activity in the area where they live, Kawangware, one of the slums of Nairobi.
