Dear Friends:

I pray that you are having a restful and restorative summer, and that all is well back at the Old Stone Church and in the great city of Cleveland, Ohio! As you are aware, I’ve been off campus on sabbatical since May 15 experiencing some restorative time of my own. That doesn’t mean I’ve been on vacation, though. In fact, I’ve been very busy doing some of the sorts of things that are reinvigorating my thoughts and my spirit for my ministry among you. Here’s the “dirty” details and more photos! (more…)

“All of us, if we are reasonably comfortable, healthy and safe, owe immense debts to the past.There is is no way, of course, to repay the past. We can only pay those debts by making gifts to the future.” – Jane Jacobs

Thank the past by "gifting" the future.

We thank the past by “gifting” the future.

Leonard Cohen quote“I lost my way, I forgot to call on your name. The raw heart beat against the world, and the tears were for my lost victory. But you are here. The world is all forgetting, and the heart is a rage of directions, but your name unifies the heart, and the world is lifted into its place. Blessed is the one who waits in the traveller’s heart for his turning.”

– Leonard Cohen
