Donna Morgan

Tennessee

I remember, very clearly, sitting in some general assembly, in the gym at Campus School, when I wrestled with the thought that before I was born, I, Donna Morgan, did not exist, was not known, could not be imagined by those already living and that one day those who come after me wouldl not know me, would not know what I was like, how I walked and my voice, my handwiting, how I laughed or what I really thought. It was a startling revelation to this fourth grader and I have thought and grappled with this idea since. My life is like vapor and mist. I will not be here long. What legacy will I leave? What difference will I make? Do I matter? Sojourner means (in the King James Version of the Bible "to be a stranger"); Hebrews 11:9). The corresponding noun for "sojourner" is paroikos; Acts 7:6, 26 Ephesians 2:19 1 Peter 2:11), with paroikia, "sojourning" (The Wisdom of Solomon 19:10; ; Acts 13:17 (the King James Version "dwelling as strangers"); 1 Peter 1:17). In addition, epidemeo, "to be among people," is translated "to sojourn" in Acts 2:10; Acts 17:21, and its compound parepidemos, as "sojourner" in 1 Peter 1:1 (in Hebrews 11:13 1 Peter 2:11, "pilgrim").
