A few years ago, Pastor Mike Slaughter of the Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, Ohio, challenged the congregation to remember in their gift-making that Christmas celebrates Jesus' birthday.

I grew up in the US speaking English. At 56, I’ve now also been speaking Spanish for the past 20 years. I still find it magical. It isn’t that I believe what my Spanish teacher said about Spanish being God’s language. Nor does it feel magical because I learned to speak it as if by magic. I did not.

A man sat on a log at the edge of the washed-out hillside. A few hours earlier, heavy rains on the deforested hilltop had become a tidal wave of mud washing everything in its path into the river below. Hundreds of houses were lost. No one knew how many people had escaped and how many were buried in the mud.

Encountering God in the Midst of a Crisis

Women and children unload food for their community Each day I am challenged to live out my faith. I arrived in Waspam, Nicaragua in October 2007, about a month after Hurricane Felix hit. This community of 6,000 people is on the Coco River, which forms the border of southern Honduras and northern Nicaragua. Most residents are Miskito, an indigenous people who have populated the region for centuries.

 "Go to school!"

Dulcibella celebrates her achievements with Rev. Lysette Perez. Living in the poverty of the small village of Talanga, a valley nestled between the mountains of Honduras, a young mother of six growing children had never aspired to anything beyond the life she now experienced with her family. Dulcibella left school at the age of 12, later married and began raising a family. It was not uncommon for the people of her village to leave school at such an early age and join the daily struggle for survival.

 August 20, 2006

When people let God into their lives and into their relationships with each other, transformation begins. Two years ago, I witnessed a little girl’s death from malnutrition. And although that was very sad, I also saw how God intervened and saved the girl’s sister from the same fate. She is alive and well today. That’s transformation!

In 1982 the late John Paul II said, “The memory of Jesus stripped naked, beaten, derided, nailed to the cross” should make all Christians “reject, spontaneously and absolutely, any recourse to such means which nothing on earth can justify and which destroy the dignity of both the tortured and the torturer.”
