For Fran and Jane R and PJ and all who have way too many tasks to do and not enough time to do them in.
For MadPriest and the Mrs while they are away.
For Mark (Mapko) who mourns and sorts out life without Nikolai.
For The Cunning Runt who is " moving and setting up a new phone system and dealing with some rather serious health issues."
For diocesan conventions this weekend for the Dioceses of California and the Rio Grande.
For continued healing for Bishop Marc.
Recovery for the Rt. Rev. Marc Handley Andrus will take a little longer than originally hoped, and he will not be in attendance at the 160th Convention of the Diocese of California this Friday and Saturday. Bishop Marc will make his presentation to the convention by video. For more personal information about Bishop Mark’s health status, visit his blog: bishopmarc.com.For Joe.
I sent this to David@Montreal yesterday and share it here with y'all:
Since the Holy Spirit is described in Corinthians as both the giver of diverse gifts and the source of unity, my "beatific vision" is one of ever-increasing complexity with ever-increasing interrelatedness. One one level, of course, that is simply the reality of what already exists in God, yet I believe it is not static but ever unfolding, growing, and dazzling in the divine imagination. No wonder we have to run to catch up, while we must also be still and just know awe.
