'Tis the Gift to Be Simple

One of the most beautiful things I saw on our photo/adventure trip was quietly majestic and graceful. In the midst of buskers, beggars and barkers was a little group of Mennonites standing in front of an abandoned, barred theater peacefully singing. They refused to let the noisy distractions of the world deter them from delivering their message of peace. Two at a time would take a break from singing to hand out CDs of hymns to passersby.

I asked a boy where they were from and he said some came from Colorado, some from Washington and some from Pennsylvania.

I think it takes a great deal of courage to be so different and boldly STAND for what you believe in. Not in a noisy way, just quietly standing out.
