This is a question I posed recently. It has been on my mind since a recent trip to the town where I grew up. I appreciate the feedback I got back from quite a few perspectives. It’s hard, but important I think, to have a mind open to someone else’s point of view. I need the perspective, really. No one sees things the way they are, not completely. That takes a lot of points of view, to see things from all sides. Thanks those who responded and helped me expand my view.
I want to encourage you, and me, to take some time to deeply consider this question.
As I glanced around the internet for an image that would help me communicate this question, I got what they call in Texas an “eye full!” There were a good number of points of view that I encountered there that went well beyond the direct feedback I received, and some strange ones at that.
Really great times with Greg and Jan in Northern Mexico…. also, we squeezed in a trip Matamoros somehow. We were busy in the streets, the bible school and with friends, but it was really a blessing.
This was my second time to Northern Mexico since I was 17 years old (1st return was Piedras Negras 2004), and my first time to Monterrey. It is really a nice city (not to mention dangerous!) and I will definitely be planning to go back. We are talking about conquering a nearby mountain that dealt Greg some misery last time he climbed it… sounds like fun (sort of)!

Es Tiempo de Entregarse was the theme of the conference here in Puebla, which lies in sight of an active volcano. It was snow-capped but puffing smoke in our view, as the conference momentum grew and overflowed.
Internet connectivity here has been a challenge, so I apologize for no updates before now.
Photo here was of the last meeting, which, like the sum of our time here, was beyond expectations. More photos on this FB album:
