Magdalene, the residential recovery ministry with which I went to Houston last month, was profiled in a segment on PBS's Religion and Ethics Newsweekly. It's a great segment, highlighting Rev. Becca Stevens and all the great work of Magdalene, including the Thistle Farms nonprofit body care company.
I love seeing some of my new friends on this video. This is such a special group of women. When I saw a couple of the ladies from the Houston trip last week at the Thistle Farms open house, we hugged tighter than most friends I've known for years. In fact, we hugged almost that tight the very first time we met. These women have known such deep despair, they know know an even deeper love.
