Newsletter  Domino December

End of semester- many are busy with their exams before Christmas. And many are leaving to see family and friends in their countries. For some, like Barbara, Ewa, Radek, Ricardo and Sophie life and studies continues at home. It´s been so pleasant to be with you all, and especially thanks to those who will not return. Not to forget br Brian who moves on to South Africa.

So many various celebrations, excursions and talk!  I think we are preparing ourselves in our student community– to be witnesses of God´s love for the world and to bring out his Word in the world, by our presence, but also through our activities, work and words. And that we are witnesses already! The world is a suffering world, and this man Jesus has something to do  with end of this suffering: where truth about life shines through: It´s all love.

For next semester: We´re talking about a travel somewhere. Evelina and Ewa are looking at the possibility to go to Krakow in Poland in the beginning of June – to meet with the studentgroup and the Dominican brothers, to visit, and perhabs a seminary or two…
I also hope there will be a continuation a our Theater Workshop with Staffan G – perhabs a theatre group will emerge? Bring out the Word, I said – why not a Preacher Workshop, to get used to proclaim the Gospel?
In February, 3rd-5th,  we are planning Film Days on the theme Creation and Destruction – about five films, among them some by the great Russian director Tarkovskij.
In  March, 19th to 20th,  an ecumenical Taizémeeting will take place in Lund – and Sandgatan will be a center for volonteers, I hope.

Thanks to you all – see you, yours br Björn
