living through death

As one who lives in an area with a growing population of poorly understood Somali immigrants, this excellent post by Mark Love seemed most worthy of being passed on. It is clearly written by a man who has been disciplined to look beyond his own immediate interests—which is the first step toward relationship, the first step in every act of love. John 4:1-26

  1. Thanks, Alex, for the nice words. I was at Luther Sem in St. Paul for two years and was often struck by the large numbers of Somalis and others. Watch for my friend Scott Hagley who just completed a PhD from Luther and is adjuncting and coaching soccer at Bethel. He would be interested in your work.

  2. Hi Mark,
    I’m actually up in the St. Cloud area (my time at Bethel was mostly via a distance delivery program). I just searched for Scott through facebook. Looks like he’s friends with my sister-in-law. Also looks like he enjoys climbing around in the mountains. I like him already. 🙂

    Thanks for the heads-up. And thanks for the insightful writings (also enjoyed your reflections from a cabin up north).
