New York City

Well, you may have wondered about the quiet here lately - it hasn't been for a lack of things on my mind! In fact, tonight I'm departing with my group of Praxis students to spend 10 days in New York City.

As group we'll be engage in a variety of activities that extend what we’ve been studying and experiencing related to faith in urban culture. In particular, we are partnering with Mennonite Disaster Services (MDS) to help with hurricane relief work ongoing after Sandy in 2012. We are touring church parishes with the fine folks at Trinity Grace Church. We also have the chance to visit the Mennonite Central Committee office at the United Nations. Along the way we’ll also be learning more about New York City and its complex culture, from social issues such as homelessness to its thriving arts scene (yes, we get to see a Broadway show!). All this to say, it's an exciting time to be embarking on this inaugural Praxis trip and I can’t wait to share stories of the experience.
