Today was our last workday in Mexico. We finished up with a great lunch (including tamales!) and the Christians from Mexico singing for us. During the singing, something occurred to me. If we are pursuing God dream for the world or, stated differently, his original intent for where the project is supposed to go, then we must get back to the other side of the tower of Babel. Babel, it seems to me, is where barriers came up between people...where languages barriers and borders came up. Perhaps one of the things we need to be about as followers of Jesus, is the removal and erasure of those borders and barriers that unnecessarily separate people. For too long we have made Christianity an individual enterprise. Perhaps we need to make a point in our churches to facilitate ways for people to do exactly that.
P.S. Longer post next week.
