We were recently invited to the home of one of our students for a family dinner. As we arrived, we were introduced to her father-in-law who was clearly the family patriarch. He was the host for the evening and we enjoyed hearing his vibrant stories of life in this context over many years. At the end of the evening, he made a special presentation of his homemade pinecone art – he’s clearly got the golden “Midas touch”! These scenarios are always humbling for us because we can sense that our friends are giving generously out of relative poverty. May we all be “golden” in the way we share what God has so freely given us.
