The new interns are out. OH how I love them. I just got an email from my beautiful friend Kym and it made me laugh so much. For all of the angst, HNGR is so crazy and fun.

Bits shared with permission.

"...I sat down with Ruth and she made me some maps so I can walk to a couple places. They're super detailed and funny, like, "turn left at the temple with three golden dragons (not the red ones with gold details--walk past this one!!)" and, "if you get to the sign with the giant chicken YOU'VE GONE TO FAR!! STOP WALKING!"."

"My Thai tutor laughed at me for probably a solid minute today because I can not for the life of me distinguish the difference between the word for shirt and the word for tiger. She swears they're different and I swear she's lying."

"I chased a catfish out from under a bush today (don't ask me how it got there because it wasn't my fault. Mmkay maybe it was a little bit)."
Hahahahahaha HNGR.

(Also, this is my quote of the day:
" I almost sent that blog post to you as an email before I posted it, and then I was like, no Kym, that's dumb, and then I was like, but I really want to make sure emily reads it!, and then I was like, of course she's going to read it, Emily's like, reigning queen of the hngr blogosphere, and then i was like, you're being weird and if you send an email to anyone now you're going to freak them out with your weirdness, and then i just posted it and then it was too late."
 I feel so affirmed. Reigning queen, holler.)

(Dear Kym, please come home soon, I miss you. Xoxoxoxo, Emily.)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
