Thanks for following me all these years. It’s appreciated.
Hey it’s Monday. Let’s have a swell week ahead. Be good to others and yourself while you are at it. Grace and peace good people!
Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.
Today we remember his life, his influence, his impact on the lives of people everywhere. Thank you Dr. King for your legacy, you still inspire us today.
Influencers can influence good.
I miss serving on Sundays at Church as a Lay Eucharistic Minister. Due to COVID-19 my parish, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is meeting outdoors and taking precautions to keep our members safe. This means communion, which is served in two-parts, bread and wine that is the body and blood of Christ we are only serving the bread which is safer to serve. (I would normally serve the wine which comes from a chalice which is a common cup everyone drinks from by a very ancient tradition).
Much has changed in how we live our daily lives. Everything seems different and it’s challenging to all of us to adapt and adjust. For me my faith has helped out with that. Other folks are finding comfort in their own ways. My hope is for a future where we can return to the ordinary but the normal will be redefined.
Service on Sunday is important to me but keeping my family, friends and strangers safe and well is so much more important. God calls that being good to my neighbors and myself.
What sort of supernatural being would you be?
Or would you be something completely different. I like the idea of being a vampire or a warlock just to mix things up. I am good enough to be an Angel I think.
I am digging Star Trek: Discovery which is streaming on CBS All Access. It’s a terrific sci-fi show featuring the spirit of the original with a whole new story. I like it better than The Next Generation which is revered by many including me. The thing about sci-fi is that anything is possible, we just need to give those stories a chance. Discovery is a metaphor for life.
Yours truly at age 17 and at age 50. How it started and how its going. I am 51 these days.
