... I was in Odessa, Ukraine, teaching at a Messianic Jewish congregation (Christians from a Jewish background). I saw a split-second mental picture of a couple of girls walking alongside a road. A tractor came around the curve, pulling a sickle that cuts grass to make hay. The blade had fallen down without the driver realising it. When he passed the girls, the blade almost cut off one girl's legs at the knees. I thought 'this is a crazy word to give in a city. If I were on a collective farm, it would make more sense.' But I gave it anyway.
