|The backdrop to our "moving meditations".|
There would be no paddling today. In my vocation, as a parish minister, I am called to focus on other matters. In our faith tradition, it is Good Friday, a day for contemplation and understanding. Today, we found our lives woven forever into the fabric of the lives of a young mother and her two beautiful children. They came to us, in need of gifts of warmth and compassion...and acceptance. They knew they would find those gifts at our parish home, for it is known far and wide as a "safe harbour" for all. Those gifts were given, by so many, with so much love.
Today was not a day to paddle...but it was a day to affirm the goodness of humankind.
For me, that is even better, than even the very best day on the water.
May peace be with you,
