Two weeks ago, we got a call from Grace University, a small school in Omaha, Nebrasksa.  Two students were on their way to the John Perkins Foundation, where they were to spend a semester living in community and learning about justice and reconciliation.  The Lotus House agreed to provide lodging for their journey.

Last Thursday, Sam and Andy arrived in St. Louis.  In the process of getting here, their transmission went kaput and required a full rebuild.  What began as a brief stay ended turned into nearly a week-long immersion in life at the Lotus House.

Sam and Andy brought tales of community life abroad in Mali and shared their journey in ministry — along with a glass of warm kefir.
