❝ Jesus ate forbidden meals with tax collectors and women and all those considered riffraff by the customs of the day. He was not afraid to touch the untouchable and to cleanse the unclean. People were irresistibly drawn to him, and his healing energy provided a steady stream of hope and compassion for those who thirsted for the simplest of human needs. Encounters with hypocrisy filled him with anger, and the sight of suffering moved him to compassion. The kingdom of God as we witness Jesus living it is about responsible and caring relationships, ones that come out of a bigger story than Jesus’ listeners were accustomed to hearing. ❞

We kayaked and cliff jumped and ran around on a Roman aqueduct that was built in 50ish AD. Pretty neat, eh.

❝ This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year: Things will change. You won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs the most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you’ve felt heartache. You can’t have a sense of victory unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil, and you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died. ❞

"The greatest continuing news story in the history of man has begun," The Times declared on June 6, 1944, better known as D-day. The declaration came not in the text of the story on the front page, but in the box you see at the bottom. It promised "the detailed story of the invasion, complete with all the available maps and pictures," delivered with "speed, thoroughness and accuracy."
You can see how some of that coverage played out in the days that followed here, and here are photos of people reading the front page you see above.
