Wilmington Faith & Values or WilmingtonFAVS is a local non-denominational publication. Among other topics, I write about my time living in Tonga as a Peace Corps volunteer, where I often encountered spiritual and cultural parallels between Southern and Tongan heritage. Since childhood, my experiences with the self-proclaimed religious people have sometimes been hostile and unappealing, but over time I’ve discovered that not all people submerged in their faith are disconnected from everyone else.
