Purple flowers, University of the West Indies, Mona Campus

The International Ecumenical Peace Convocation
met on the
Mona Campus
of the
University of the West Indies.

Memories of those days remain:
learning, leading, warm sun
worship, singing, prayers,
speakers, workshops,
networks built and renewed,
Colombia Accompaniment Program,
new options for pursuing peace,
Red Stripe under the moon,
jerk chicken, sweet and sour tofu,
little hot dogs in sauce, jerk chicken,
Sarah, Marta, Shaya, Theresa
and in the gardens,
purple flowers.

Concrete to grass

From concrete 
to grass
in a few short steps,
with different surfaces
on we go.

More barbed wire

Walls and barbed wire have run through my mind ever since reading Theresa Cho’s post Unveiling the Barbed Wire Divider. I attended the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation as well so the themes were close at hand. Theresa’s words inspired some words from me. And led me to a picture I had taken at the University of the West Indies:

Not sure what to make of the picture – but it is worth pondering.

See you along the Trail.

Backtracking

Every now and then it becomes necessary to backtrack on the Trail. We move ahead only by moving back.

Sometimes this is because we are lost. Sometimes it is because we forgot something. Sometimes it is to correct something.

I noticed that a number of my posts had picked up really odd labels. What was worse, when adding new labels they autofilled and expanded the problem.

So this morning, I backtracked. I cleaned them up, deleted them.

In the process, I changed the order of my posts. Strange. But that sort of thing happens when one has no idea what one is truly doing.

If you want to see my most recent posts – which come from the experience of the International Ecumenical Peace Convocation in Jamaica – check out this link: http://graybeardtrail.blogspot.com/search/label/Jamaica.

On Twitter, you can check #iepc for posts about the convocation. I tweet as @wmkoenig personally and as @PresbyUN for work.

See you along the Trail.
