(Tværkulturelt Center) "The Intercultural Christian Centre is a national network of 155 Danish Lutheran churches, international/migrant churches and Christian NGOs (see list) which was founded in 1994 as a resource centre for local churches (Danish and non-Danish) and Christian organisations ministering to refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers. The Centre offers 3-4 annual multiethnic conferences and seminars, publishes a quarterly newspaper where refugees and immigrants tell their stories and church initiatives are described, publishes booklets and resource materials and provides information and support for local churches and others. The Centre seeks to equip Danish and non-Danish Christians living in Denmark to be an authentic Christian presence in Danish society in word and deed. We also offer a code of conduct for building good and honest relations with people of different faiths or none based on mutual respect and without compromising what we ourselves are convinced is the truth. It is the deliberate policy of the Centre to give Christian refugees and immigrants a platform for speaking, writing and exercising leadership." Extremely well expressed and so I have added a litttle info to assist the reader. Long time since I have been here on vn. Hope you are well Elizabeth. fondest wishes Porthos

Nicely put, comrade! During these unprecedented times the value of gold is immaterial. What ‘investors’ would be prudent in investing in is humility and being more aware of human impermanence. Stay safe, my good friend.

Hi Keith, so good to see you back on the pages of a very much changed VN, although an earlier work it's so good to read again the craftmanship of your poetry, poetry of a calibre so sorely missed. I for one share your pain of loss and the longing you feel and so eloquently express, time heals wounds but dosn't heal the heartache we feel and the love we so sorely miss. Hope all is well my friend, take care, Ken.

Matter of fact, full of wisdom and inspiring, Rhymer. This poem will do many of us a world of good right now, circumstances are so taxing but you put things in perspective. I truly laud your spirit. I like so many others have been a little despondent and low too. Hopefully, all this will pass. Thank you. Loved your poem. Fondest to you both xx
