Dear Friends,

Dear Friends,

“Do you need Me? I am there.

You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by.

You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice,

You cannot feel Me, yet I am the power at work in your hands.

“As you journey through life,
choose your destination well but do not hurry there.
You will arrive soon enough.
Wander the back roads and forgotten paths,
keeping your destination in your heart,

Dear Friends,

“O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.”

Dear Friends,

“Thrush song, stream song, holy love

That flows through earthly forms and folds,

The song of Heaven’s Sabbath fleshed

In throat and ear, in stream and stone,

“Jesus Christ never asked those who met him to become a rabbi like himself. He always asked them to do what they could for him, even when it was a simple request like, ‘Give me a drink.’ For it is when we use the potentials God has given us to advance the purposes of God’s Kingdom that we become partners with, rather than strangers to, our Lord."
