The Journey Begins (May 31-June 5)

God is GOOD!!! I am so excited for my journey as a peace intern this summer. It is such a blessing to be apart of the Disciples ministry and I cannot think of a better time to be apart of the church 🙂 I am leaving this summer for Nebraska, Colorado, Michigan, New York, New Mexico, Nova Scotia, and Oregon! Our week of training with Kathy allowed me to see what it means to be a disciple from a light that I do not see everyday: To call myself a Christian should encompass a mission of protecting those who cannot protect themselves, feeding those who have nothing on their table, and teaching the world about their plight. The Ministerial staff at the General Office are inspiring individuals who wish to spread the news of the gospel from the understanding that being Christian means justice for all. PERIOD.
“Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,
for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13: 1, 2
“Give ear, O people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. I will open my mouth in a parable; things that we have heard and known, the glorious deeds
of the Lord, and her might, and the wonders that he has done.” Psalm 78:1-4

Christian Watkins is one of three 2010 Disciples Peace Interns. A native of Chanute, Kansas, she is a recent graduate of the Kansas University Sociology program. This fall Christian will be assigned to either Ireland or Australia for her internship year. Follow Christian and her fellow interns, Alexis Branaman and Katie Russell, here on this blog throughout the summer, and be sure to look for updates and photos from them on Facebook.
