Hi: My name is Elaine.
I’ve lived in Upstate New York for many years. Although, I was born not far from New York City I have always been more of a country gal. I like the quiet, the beauty of nature, and the slower pace which matches my more contemplative nature.
I received an email in June regarding the “Behind Every Question” challenge and desired to take part in it but procrastinated as is my wont. To be honest, I hoped that it would help me to be better equipped to understand friends who have a different political stance than me as we move closer to the presidential election here in the U.S. However, I have long wanted to develop the courage and compassion to share my faith with others in a meaningful way, and to that end I have thought about taking the Core Module course. I hope to, on the Connect forums, pose questions as well as to respond to those of others and to learn in the process. I am grateful to RZIM for providing this opportunity.
