God Grant Us Many Years

Beloved Friends,
Today I write to you wearing the hat of one my most meaningful vocations- that of a parent. Kim and I are celebrating Taylor’s 23rd birthday; the gift she is in our lives and in the world. This year brings a bittersweet moment as it is the first of no doubt many years ahead when we are not able to be together for her celebration. As a young adult in the world, she is finding her beautiful way staying both connected to us while also living into a glorious and necessary independence far from home.

And, yes, it also feels wonderful to

Beloved Friends,
This is the last submission during my summer sabbath time. I hope you have enjoyed the poems and prayers we have offered the past few weeks. I will be back next Friday to pick up where we left off and restart our weekly conversation in this space.

I am so very grateful for …
