I guess I was always on the leading edge in taking up new technology. I had one of the first Apple II computers, played with the internet before there was an internet (anyone remember CRS?), had an mp3 player before anyone knew what that meant. Lots of these decisions caused me grief since it's hard to get something serviced if you are the only one who has the technology. Still, I like to try new things and an E-bike falls into this category since it is a new technology that that is just starting to be available.

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about Gaza and Israel. A story from this past Sunday resonates with that difficult situation. I'd like to tell you the story, but if you want to look it up, Matthew's version is in chapter 15: 21 - 28. Quotations are from the NRSV.

In Burkina Faso, French is the common language because of its colonial history, but there are sixty indigenous languages. The culture is deeply West African with expectations and patterns a world away from Grey County. Sometimes the words were clear to those of us with enough French, but the meaning took more time to surface.
