In my last email I described how America conflates Christianity with white-American culture and how I'm hesitant to casually share my faith in Silicon Valley because of the negative connotations it carries.
One of my fundamental beliefs about the way of Jesus is that it represents good news for everyone. But in a place that's highly skeptical of that point of view (and doesn't want to hear otherwise), how can I effectively live out my faith?
On my very last day at Google, moments after turning in my employee badge, I ran into Gloria. Gloria and I had worked together the previous summer when she interned on our team. This was the first time I'd seen her since she'd returned as a full time employee, so I stopped to ask how she was enjoying the experience so far. I was expecting a canned "it's great!" but she gave me a real answer instead--things were okay. She was clearly disconcerted.
