    After seven years in a developing country, Mike Rumley-Wells returned to the U.S. – only to encounter not only culture shock, but an administration and faith-groups that did not prioritize care for the poor or the immigrant. This book is his response, as he explores practical aspects of following Jesus in a divisive political milieu – with the hope of encouraging others who may also feel alienated from their community. Each of the 37 reflections explores ways to persevere in grace and love, pote After seven years in a developing country, Mike Rumley-Wells returned to the U.S. – only to encounter not only culture shock, but an administration and faith-groups that did not prioritize care for the poor or the immigrant. This book is his response, as he explores practical aspects of following Jesus in a divisive political milieu – with the hope of encouraging others who may also feel alienated from their community. Each of the 37 reflections explores ways to persevere in grace and love, potentially in the face of misunderstanding and even hostility. Rumley-Wells shares ways he is learning to think, communicate and set boundaries, so as to walk in peace with all. Now, my personal take-away, as a reader: I have felt angry for the past four years, so this book is giving me some helpful reminders. Specifically, bitterness will be self-destructive, if I choose to judge and hate others – even though my frustrations may stem from important social issues. My rancor isn’t aiding anyone. Jesus-followers are called to love enemies, whoever they may be. I am also finding validation in the meditations on grief, loss, lament, malaise and hope, and comfort from the prayers at the end of each reflection.

    So many highlights in this book! I was challenged, stretched, encouraged, and brought to new understanding. The author's authenticity and straight-forward writing truly cut to the heart. A great read especially during this pivotal moment in history. So many highlights in this book! I was challenged, stretched, encouraged, and brought to new understanding.
