Sunday morning meditation

This morning I am headed off to worship in a foreign language. In Allentown, PA, there are a group of refugees from Burma who are all of the Chin ethnic group. I met with their Elder, Timothy Van Nei and his brothers back in the Fall and heard part of their story.

Today I’ll experience first-hand what most of them have been dealing with for a long time now. Being a stranger. Being the foreigner. Being the one who struggles to figure out what is being said.

Today I will also experience something that many of them have probably not experienced a great deal of: being the one who is welcomed.
