These past days were intense

These past days were intense. I am now sitting at the airport and am finally getting a chance to catch a breath and to process this experience. It was wonderful meeting young theologians from around Europe. We agreed and disagreed on many different topics, while always being appreciative of each other. I am very happy to have learned that while travelling around Europe there will always be someone in the respective country with whom I will have some common ground. While our culture, politics and denominations may differ in many cases, there is a message that unites us. I am very thankful for this conference and for the people I encountered. Once again, I feel like being European is and will continue to be a growing part of my identity.

Safe travels everyone!
