dancing towards unity

-Trying something totally new with a friend: belly dancing! I'm enrolled in a six-week class, and it's taught by a Middle Eastern woman who explains how this dance is an act of power, liberation, wholeness and sisterhood for women from her culture. She also talked about how we won't only be learning to dance, but also about how false media stereotypes of Middle Eastern women are. I think I'm going to love it.

-God providing much in the past couple of days: inspiration, energy, rest, help, eventual youth participation, movement and peace.

-A really thoughtful gift from home.
