Last Friday I spent the morning at Lancaster Bible College with Professor Dick Cleary and his philosophy students. I hadn't been in a real college environment since Mansfield in the 1980's. It was foreign and fun at the same time.
Then I spent 24 hours with the youth of CLC. A famine program...Weekend in Haiti. The kids are impressive young people. It was great to spend time with them.
I sometimes feel I couldn't work with folks here in the USA very much. It is so different from working with Haitians. BUT, in the end it is all about working with people. And people are the same where ever you go. (I think Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder sang that.)
Now I'm purchasing and packing for my flight next Thursday. Transitions are always a mix of good and bad. You want to get to where you are going, but you don't want to leave. I can't help but think that in Heaven we'll be rid of the pain of leaving. Amen! It'll be 'arriving' all day every day...no leaving...no sorrow, no chagrin. :)
