One Child at a Time by Cathy Capo Stone
09/09/2013 In the middle of the stage at Florida Southern College stood a 16-year-old girl wearing a nametag that said “Poor Young Mom.” She was overwhelmed. She was trying to juggle too many balls and nothing was working for her. Seventy-eight other 6-12th graders watched. Some laughed. Some shouted their suggestions on how to keep the balls in the air. Others felt sorry for her. Some got bored and talked to one another, completely uninterested in her predicament. The girl became frustrated and almost gave up. And this was only a game.
From the Other Side by Joy Prim
09/09/2013 I recently returned from my first ever Mission u with the California-Pacific Conference United Methodist Women. I’ve been to a number of Schools of Christian Missions since I was young, but this was my first school under the new name Mission u. This was the first one on the West Coast—all the others I had attended were on the East Coast. This was also the first one for which I was a study leader at instead of just a student. I got to see the other side of the classroom.
