Our last day in Haiti was a day of play, and we played the role of Hinche tourist really well. After getting to sleep in for the first time all week (8:00 breakfast!), we strolled around town and to the public market with our translators for the week, and our new buddies, Larose (lah-rohss)...

Posted by on

Bright and early Tuesday morning we awoke to the lovely sound of dogs whining and roosters crowing. Yet our breakfast of boiled eggs, avocado, sausage, bread, and bananas quickly remedied the unruly wake up. Since it was our last day in Lauranette, Malia and I packed our belongings, organized...

After a productive Compline last night and Malia discovering suddenly that she had no idea what a mosquito looked like, we all settled down for a long night filled with shouting matches between dogs, cows, and donkeys. It didn't help that the roosters have no sense of time. We awoke to eat a...

After a night filled with the unending howls of stray dogs, the not so timely calls of roosters and the seemingly infinite crickets (seriously I've never heard crickets anywhere near as loud), the group awoke to breakfast and an early start to our day at 730. While we thought we would be hand...

Posted by on

Today was our first day in Lauranette. We had all prepared ourselves for the bumpiest ride of our lives, and we got what we were expecting, with the occasional paved road (which came with a sigh of relief). We all made it through the ride feeling alright and received a warm welcome in...

After a Vacation Bible School hiatus last summer, VBS returned to St. Bart's the last week of July and it was AMAZING! Our Deep Sea Discovery took more than 70 kids on an underwater journey to discover all the ways that God is with us where ever we go. The Jellyfish, Starfish, Dolphin, and...

The Undomesticated Kingdom of God

Posted by The Rev. Chris Harris on

The Undomesticated Kingdom of God - When we say yes to it, The Kingdom of God it is so invasive, so blessedly disruptive to our carefully laid plans in life - that some are tempted to give everything up for it!   Deciphering Jesus’ parables is always a challenge, and these four...
