No man’s land – East/West Berlin: you can see parts of the Berlin Wall (left) and the ‘priva cy fence’ (right) in the 15’ poles that remain.

This is a good visual to post a great quote I just found on encouragement/courage.

“It may seem obvious, but the root meaning of the word encouragement is ‘to put courage into someone.’ It also means ‘to come alongside them and lift them up.’ Living in our world with integrity and conviction is hard. We all need courage breathed into our souls by those who know us best and love us most. Being present means listening, observing, valuing, and encouraging others to face the challenges of their world with hope and strength”, Jon Tyson’s book Burden is Light.
