Willingness to be made new
I had a great healing after a recent trip to France. I was there for seven weeks with a study abroad program. The academic focus of the trip was “Bridging the Cross Cultural Gap.” We practiced looking beyond stereotypes and preconceptions to explore French culture with an open mind.
The last few nights in Paris, we stayed at a youth hostel. I noticed on the flight home that bumps were developing all over my body. Initially, I guessed that these “spots” were bites from bed bugs at the youth hostel and that they would soon go away. But after my return to the United States, the bumps were multiplying. My prayer was a little vain: “Oh, no! God, I’m getting married in two weeks and I can’t look like this for the pictures!”
