To say Highland was thrilled for me is a bit of an understatement: I had visitors wish me luck on my experience and so much verbal support from friends. I also had congregation members speak to me about their own personal experiences and some even contacted friends in Louisiana who would help me during my stay. I am truly honored to be a representative of Highland in the upcoming year and share with my congregation my experiences in a city that has impacted many of them.
This post is dedicated to my Highland family: I hope to make you proud.
And, after a wonderful conversation with a member of Highland, I have chosen to integrate music into my blog posts. Since music influences me constantly and New Orleans is dripping with soulful music, I think it only right to share some with my followers. Here's "Yes We Can Can" by Allan Toussaint.
