Taken from my journal yesterday:

There is poetry in the way this man [Samuel Twumasi-Ankrah, from Accra, Ghana] holds himself, standing tall and straight on a stage decked with white flowers and tall green plants. He is dressed in white and gold robes with a geometric pattern on the front, in a room where most people are wearing business suits. His skin is the color of dark chocolate and his accent carries a halting lilt - like raw silk to the ears instead of ordinary, department-store cotton.

To a gathering of mostly white, North American Church of Christ preachers and teachers: yet another manifestation of the truth that wisdom doesn't always come in an expected form.

Praise God for ACU Lectureship.
