Stefanie- Greetings from North Netherlands

Dear RZIM family,
very inspired by the introduction clip from Ravi, I am happy to join this community and introduce myself.
One of the best discoveries last year, was to get to know the RZIM institute in Germany. On a network meeting in Berlin, I got to know Julia Garschagen who enthusiastically introduced RZIM to us. The motto: Helping the “thinker believe and the believer think” spoke absolutely to my heart. As I am a full-hearted researcher and surrounded by scientists,and students and other academics, many times I was wondering how I can give my views, how to stimulate, how to trigger people to take a second look at Christianity. I left the network meeting very curious and started directly the next basic RZIM course. I feel very privileged and blessed by having taken this course. Now I want to join Connect, first of all, because I would like to stay in touch with people like you. It is a great encouragement to know that you are out there. And I hope that I can find a way to to give back encouragement with my background and contribute with my thoughts and inspire you too. I am looking forward to get to know this new circle of friends!
