What are you thankful for?
This was our theme for the Open House event we run this time jointly with Friends Rotterdam. We are thankful for the warm hospitality Wouter & Yvonne offered us. The students, this time mostly internationals, felt at home and enjoyed the fellowship and good discussions that took place.
It is important to reflect in our lives for the many good things we have received and enjoy.
All brought some dish to share, so we had many different flavours on the table for dinner. During the discussion time we did reflect on God as the giver but also on different world views. Was meaningful. It is interesting and helpful to think through why we hold to a certain world view, the way we perceive reality and try to make sense out of life. Different points of view were expressed. One of the points that stood out was the question of identity. Who are we really? Is ‘I perform, therefore I am ‘ helpful or are we to draw our identity from the fact that we are created in the image of God and loved by God unconditionally? Was great evening!
