Today I’m wishing a happy birthday to my good friend Jaunita Grainger, a very good friend of mine.  I’m so glad our lives have crossed in this life!

I’m still feasting on my trip to CBF.  Here is a reflection we repeated often  with credit going to St. Francis

May God bless our churches with discomfort at easy answers, half truths, and superficial relationships, so that we will live dee within our hearts.

May God bless our churches with anger at  injustice, oppression, and exploitation, so that we work for justice, freedom, and peace.


May God bless our churches with tears to shed fort those who suffer from rejection, starvation and war, so that we will reach out our hands to comfort and turn their pain into joy.


May God bless our churches with enough foolishness to believe that we can make a difference in this world, so that we can do what others claim cannot be done. Amen.
