Chances are high that there are members of your parish who have been the victim of some sort of crime. While we often think of victims in terms violent crimes such as murder or rape, far more people are victimized through non-violent means, such as identity theft or property crime, each year.

<h1><a href="/blog/the-magic-of-sharing">The Magic of Sharing</a></h1>
I have often found something magical happens when you sit down to share food with others. For the hosts, it is an act of gracious hospitality, an opportunity to provide one of the basic necessities of life and to share customs and traditions. As a guest in Kenya, I found it a true honor to be offered food and drink from the tables of those who often do not have enough to eat.
