Kari Amick is a former student of my English professor friend, Dr. Alan Jacobs (ayjay.jottit.com). Kari graduated from Wheaton College this past May with a degree in Environmental Science. And my, can this young woman write! I believe this is her first published essay.
In this piece, I love the marriage of her study of whooping cranes with her reflections on family and growing up and … going home.
Take a few moments to savor this thoughtful, insightful, informative, inspirational essay. It makes me want to study cranes. And it inspires me to make a home worth coming home to for my children. That’s quite a lot for one little essay.
This piece by one of my favorite bloggers was thought-provoking to me. I love the idea that the Church is where people will turn when they are in need. And I am hopeful that my church is available in that way. What choices are we making as churches and as individuals to be present with those in need, to be the body of Christ in action?
