Poles rising

Just got back from my Polish tour, which was absolutely wonderful. Many thanks to anyone who prayed for me during the trip.

I will write about the experience in the coming days. For now, while I recover from jet lag, I have one story for you from when a Wrocław resident gave me a tour of that beautiful city's cathedral (visible in the background in this photo). Her English was overall very good, but she gave me pause as she talked about Poland's history.

She said, "In the 19th century, there were two resurrections."

I was silent for a few seconds. What a country! Then the gears started turning:

"You mean, insurrections."

She did.
