About ten years ago I was given the chance to work at the national offices of the Presbyterian Church (USA) in Louisville, Kentucky. I had never lived outside of Puerto Rico and had only experienced church as a Presbyterian in the context of the island. Coming over to the United States provided unique opportunities and challenges. I had to navigate a language other than Spanish. I had to live in a place where I became a minority. I had to deal with a different culture (or cultures). It was fascinating and terrifying at the same time.
