Did you know that 'adiós' means 'to God' (a Dios)? Those are fitting words for our departure from Tarija today. We had our final meetings with Sara and Eva yesterday and are confident in their abilities and this project. It will be exciting to see where things go from here!
Today is Maundy Thursday, and we remember Christ's mandate (which is where we get the word 'maundy' from) to us to seek his kingdom and righteousness and to take the posture of a servant as he did -- washing his friends' feet on the night before he died. The following collect on mission is appropriate for today and to reflect on in the work of Five Talents:
O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you; bring the nations into your fold; pour out your Spirit upon all flesh, and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Thanks for keeping updated. I hope that you may be brought more meaningfully into His fold this Holy Week... adiós!
