These movements of people allow us the opportunity to extend hope and hospitality to those fleeing hostility or drawn by the promise of a better life for their family. Here in the Triangle approximately 1000 refugees resettle each year. Regularly I meet women and men who ask how they can help.

Come Go With Us, by Marc Wyatt, CBF Field Personnel

Dr. Braswell’s invitation began a great adventure. We were able to spend many hours of quality time with one of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable Christian Educators. Like a sponge we soaked up every word and experience. The week took us back and forth across the great divide that has separated many around the world and across the ages. We sat crossed legged as we listened to Buddhist share their view of reality. We were welcomed wholeheartedly by our hosts as each invited us into their sacred spaces; Mormons, Muslims and Hindus each North Carolinians, many of which have lived in Raleigh, Cary and Durham longer than our fellow Campbell Divinity Students were old.

Men getting off work were ‘window shopping.’ Only a few of the windows were occupied as business was quite brisk at this time of day.

Going the Second Mile by Nell Green

This past week, I heard a sermon on what Jesus meant when he said, “If someone asks you to go one mile, go with him two.” (Matthew 5:41) It was one of those sermons that you were compelled to take with you into your week and ask yourself, “In this situation, what does it mean to go the second mile?” My husband and I bantered back and forth a bit over the next couple of days saying, “Remember! Go the second mile!” And then I saw Matthew 5:41 put into action.  I witnessed a stranger going the second mile.
