At our commissioning service on Thursday, Tom Driver reminded us that although we worship a God who died, our God is not dead. Jesus lives on in the suffering and injustice that surrounds us, and in the movements that strive for peace and liberation. Janet Walton invited us to break bread together and the wider Union community offered us messages of safe-travels and hope in a laying-on-of-hands.
After 20 hours of driving yesterday, all twelve of us made it safely to Fort Benning. We are looking forward to a weekend of protesting, learning, and community-building as we envision the possibility of a new world.
