UNCSW 2010: Translating a Smile

November 10, 2014

At this point in our week, I feel so physically and emotionally drained. I have forgotten what “well rested” felt like. I just want to take in as much as I can, yet my days are getting harder and harder to get through. The thought of going home makes me sad now. How do I […]

UNCSW 2010: Go Out and Set the World on Fire

November 10, 2014

As I’m writing this, I’m listening to Peter Gabriel’s song “Biko”. The lyrics describe my feelings about the UN CSW well: “You can blow out the candle, but you can’t blow out the fire.

UNCSW 2010: The Difference that Christ Makes

November 10, 2014

by Ruth Lindsay, Diocese of Arizona I have been involved in secular activism for quite a few years.

But passionate commitment was never enough to […]

UNCSW 2010: Amani Iwe Nawe

November 10, 2014

by Brede Eschliman, Diocese of Connecticut The best part of my day (other than the meeting the presiding bishop, which was incredible) was an unexpected conversation.
