The Amazing Race is one of my favorite TV shows. Not surprising since it's all about travel and adventure (give or take a little drama). I was intrigued by a link I saw on a blog today for The World Race. It's an 11 month, 11 country mission for young people (and I believe it's been determined that my collective group of friends can no longer be called "young adults"....in fact one discussion was Yippums...young possible marriage possible mortgage....). Anyhow, I think that programs like this can completely change your world view and open your heart to the poverty and injustice in the world. And what your love, prayer and actions can do to change a life (possibly someone else's and probably your own). I am happy to see more people willing to give of their time and resources for something that has primarily intangible and unmeasurable benefits. And it's one more thing that makes me ponder....
