On a Mission

In just a couple of days I will be on a mission trip to West Virginia where I, along with 9 others from my church, and a bunch of others from other organizations will help repair homes in the Appalachians. Coming from some rural and fairly poor roots myself, I feel a certain anticipatory kinship to those we will serve next week. I wonder if I will see some familiar trappings of the poor, rural, southern life or if I will be surprised to find that all these years later since my family emerged from the hills things aren’t quite so primitive. Maybe I’ll find both.

Chances are good that I won’t blog again until I am back home from the trip.

Until then, try not to miss me now that I’m finally blogging again.
