Excerpt from “Another Nautical found in Amanda Gorman’s book, Call Us What We Carry:
Hope is the soft bird
We send across the sea
To see if this earth is still home. 
We ask you honestly:
Is it?
For those not in the know, Priest Lisa gave us this book in an Easter bag this year, and this is the one that stands out to me today. As we look to Sunday and say our “see you soon” to Lisa, I am reminded of all the other hard goodbyes in my life. The church will continue to do her work in our little corner of Northwest Ohio, but we will miss her for sure.

 Grace and peace,

George Benson (he/him)
(From my kid’s baptism a few months ago)
