A Message from Rev. Dave
This was a strange period of time, with the passing of a number of cultural icons. First, Betty White, who I learned with her passing has devoted much of her life to the care and rescue of animals. Second, the singer known as Meatloaf, whose music filled my head with memories of many high school dances, and most recently, Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist teacher known to Martin Luther King Junior and Thomas Merton. On learning of his death, the Dalai Llama, in a letter of condolence, offered, “I have no doubt that the best way we can pay tribute to him is to continue his work to promote peace in the world.” I commend his writings to you and ask for prayer for all of these souls and all who have been lost in recent times.
To be totally honest, I miss you folks! I am perhaps optimistically thinking we can look at regathering in early February. We’ll see how things look then. No more info at the moment on the scheduled Bishop’s visitation, but I have little doubt it will be unlike any other visitation you have had!
Be well and be safe.
Life is short,
And we do not have much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel with –
So be swift to love,
Make haste to be kind,
And go in peace to love and serve the Lord.
