Intro to Watsonopolis

There was one who once said crazy things like, give your possessions to the poor, let your light shine, go to the ends of the earth, love God, love your neighbor, serve, pray, die and live. Those words, the words of Jesus, have gripped and shaped our lives.

Because of Jesus’ life, challenge and love we are propelled into an amazing life journey; a journey that most often finds us pitching our tent among the poor and those on the margins of our world, serving, living, teaching, learning and loving there.

Swimming in the Indian Ocean

I (Matthew) have been back from Indonesia for several weeks now, but the images and people that I met are still incredibly fresh. The juxtaposition of natural beauty and natural disaster were constantly awkward and awe inspiring.

To be swimming in on an amazing beach, clear waters, surrounded by bright green beautiful mountains. A scene from the cover of a tropical resort catalogue. And yet, to get to this spot I pass a sign noting that this was one of the spots where the tsunami made land fall washing out to sea countless souls who happened to be fishing that morning.
