We are back and with these words I welcome you all to our new website. The transition from the old website to this new one has been more difficult than we imagined, but I guess that when it is all said and done, 'that is Africa!" It always has its own way of levelling things out. An Africa that has been very much in the news this week with Pope Francis visiting Nairobi. Francis created a presence that stopped the nation. A public holiday was declared earlier in the week and all events have been great. On Friday morning Pope Francis visited the Kangemi slum and I was invited to bring nine people who could represent Ruben Centre. It was a sensational experience. See my article on this visit.
Reflections on Origins of Life
Just another day at the office was proceeding. I was distracted with our financial plight, (KES 34,000 / $US 350 in our bank account), but desiring to think about something else, I got into planning the upcoming week -end retreat with key staff on STORY. Of course the beginning takes me back 13.7 billion years and the great flaring forth of life with the big bang. Now away from my small world, I felt immediate relief. However just as I began my journey into space and time, I was called to come to the social worker’s office and on arrival I find them huddled around a weebaby.
