Mom’s Breakfast

18 Feb

This past month of January featured Vision 16’s first Mother & Son breakfast.  The guys at the 17th ave house asked their mothers to join them for breakfast and followed with a time of both affirmation and reflection.  Let’s just say there was a great deal of joyous tears from moms that felt well loved.

Below are some photos from the day.

Beauty in all Things

11 Feb


Miroslav Volf is a well known theologian who currently works as a professor at Yale Divinity School.  A great portion of his work focuses on  issues of division in our current world — between ethnic groups, denominations and faiths as well as between the realms of spiritual and secular.  He was recently featured on The work of the People, an online ecumenical platform that produces and publishes multimedia.  Within this feature Volf is asked a series of questions, one in which focuses on the topic of beauty. The producers start the conversation off in an atypical question but Volf’s response is engaging and thoughtful, both of which lead me to great conversation with friends.

If interested and have 5 minutes to spare, you can watch the video here.
