Good morning!

Today is Day 57 of my journey with Covid-19, and I am mostly recovered, praise God. However, I may cough as I’m speaking. Thank you for bearing with me, and breathing with me!

As many of you know, I’ve been involved with the World Council of Churches since about 1995. I attended my first WCC Assembly in 1998 in Harare Zimbabwe, with about 5,000 other people from over 100 countries. In a gathering like that, language is a major issue. Most of the time, everyone wears a headset to receive interpretation into a language they can understand, even if it isn’t their first language.
