I am here in the Bestest Cafe in Kuta, Bali. Having flown half way around the world I am reminded of my love of the other. I love being the outsider. I love being in another culture that is so foreign to me. Here I am.
We arrived here on the 3rd having lost a day in travel. We have traveled from the Kuta area to Blimpingsaring in the east of the island. We visited with the local Balinese church and worship this past Sunday.
The service was awesome. I loved it. We are attending lectures on contextual religion, specific Christianity.
Everywhere you look there is a temple. The island is mostly Hindu and a small part Muslim. With even less being Christian. It is beautiful here. I will put up pictures as soon as I can.
I want to share with y’all that I feel very luck that I get to do this. It has made me question what it means to be and practice Christianity.
I am in awe of the people here. Well I should go I need to get my drink on. I am going to drink Bingtang with my newly acquired tank top with the mesh sides! I am excited.
Blessings and peace and PALABRA TU MADRE!
