In a meeting yesterday Rick shared a few thoughts...
"poverty is not a matter of money, but empowerment"
"worse thing a peace team can do is give kids candy"
"when hit with deep despair there are two things that happen to people's faith, they flake out or go deeper"
The following statement was the one that hit me hardest. It is truly one to think about and reflect on:
"for there to be reconciliation, someone has to absorb the pain"
... more to come...
