contrasts

This past week, I had the great honor of getting to hang out with my friends & make new friends in Cambodia.  What’s strange today is that I’m fully comfortable in Cambodia eating hot noodle soup on a hot day in Cambodia, making great friends, sharing deep struggles and desires, as well as navigating traffic that by US standards would be nothing short of deadly.  I’m thinking of this all now in contrast as I sit in a starbucks in my US world.  It seems like I can live in diverse worlds but I think that in order to be effective in any world, I must live in the infinite context of genuine love.  Truly, it seems like the most effective way to live in any world is through living in genuine love :)
