We’re all connected…

So we’re doing something different today, just for the Red Thread Cafe Classroom, and starting in the middle! 

…I learned a new thing! I made a GoFundMe campaign! (Sadly, my girls are busy doing things like field hockey and homework or it probably would have gone a lot faster!)

Why, you wonder, did I choose this moment to learn that thing?


Gloria Venuh was my summer intern from Columbia Theological Seminary, working in the crossroads between theology and art. She became active in the Intentional Creativity community and a part of our family. 

This year wasn’t easy for her as an International student in the midst of the pandemic. Housing was in questions. Food was scarce. (Fortunately, she likes soup!) And her family is in India. 

Bill and I have helped. And we’ve reached the point where we need some other folks to help, too. You see, Gloria needs $5500 to finish paying her deposits at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Chicago. She got accepted to a PhD program in theology and art!

So back to GoFundMe. I’m going to ask you to read the attached campaign. You’ll read Gloria’s words and a powerful endorsement from one of her professors.

One day, Gloria will be helping someone else. For today, she needs us. And the world needs what she has to share!

ps… if you look closely at Gloria’s “Mother Earth” you’ll see a Red Thread running through it!
