I'm looking forward to a long train journey. I haven't done that for years. I'm looking forward to some quality time with some quality young people and workers. I'm looking forward to being part of a community of solidarity. I hope the church's involvement points beyond themselves to a God of love, care and justice.
"Being the people of God, being community, being in solidarity is not some strange afterthought on the part of God. God is a community of persons as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and, as such, God is the great community-builder. God’s concern has been to create a people who will reflect in the world something of God’s love, care and justice" (Ringma 1994:151)
