This past weekend, Budapest glowed with autumn sunlight. Walking down my street, I noticed how--in the right light--common scenes were especially beautiful. These moments prompt me to talk to God about how thankful I am for this life and how concerned I am for the dear people of this city. Join with me as I pray not only for my school out in the village but also for the city where I live.
|Trams crammed with people|
|The elderly visit this pharmacy a lot|
|This square, Kosztolányi Dezső ter, is serene. Many homeless persons rest on the benches.|
|Sirens wail as emergency vehicles rush down Bocskai street to (often) limited medical facilities.|
|A tension exists between accepting traditions, styles, (Starbucks) and values from beyond our borders |
and maintaining a rich heritage.
|Budapest's municipal government has high hopes for public transportation expansion|
and a growing economy, but the reality is not quite so rosy.
Thanks for walking and praying down my street. You are welcome to join me in person anytime!
Just buzz #31.
