img_4228Today the weather at my house is not sure if it is fall or spring. Perhaps I’m living in solidarity with my southern-hemisphere friends, who are springing as we are autumn-ing! In any case, it’s gray and drizzly out, and that makes it the perfect curl-up-with-tea-and-read-a-new-blog weather. Please join me in welcoming two bloggers to our community–their blogs are beautiful and intense, each in their own way. Pop over and visit, add them to your feed reader, and say hello!

Saint Sinner Seeker: “My name is Deb Mechler. Pastor, disciple of Jesus. Wife, mom, and “oma.” Midwestern roots ground this late bloomer. Philosopher, traveler, art lover, musician. Part of my heart is in Mali, Africa. That about sums me up. Oh, and I love pie. My given name “Deborah” means “seeking one,” or “little bee.” Little did my parents know how descriptive it would turn out to be. It seems I am constantly looking for the good stuff, eager to take it back to the hive so it can be processed and then savored by…well, Pooh, of course, among others.”

Even If The Sky Falls: “The musings, meanderings, and movement of a family serving in mission service with the Presbyterian Church (USA). Our call to international mission service is rooted in our joint family history. I am a Korean-American woman married to a Chilean-French man. My mother and her family were internally displaced refugees on the Korean peninsula, and my husband’s father was a political refugee exiled from Chile. Starting in fall 2015, we began a new appointment as the regional facilitator for addressing migration and human trafficking. Based in the Philippines, we also work throughout Asia. Walk with us, as we walk with individuals and families throughout Asia.”

Welcome, new members! We’re glad you’re here.

If you write or read a blog you think might be a good fit for our community, how about joining (or encouraging the other blogger to join)?
