David Rue preached. David and I met in Cleveland where we served together on the presbytery team working to address and disrupt racism. The photo was taken from the back of the church – we should have had one taken after the meeting.
It turned out that May 12 was the day Janice Kamikawa was approved for ordination as a Minister of the Word and Sacrament. She serves as a chaplain in a hospital and at a youth detention service. We met at Ghost Ranch during a week in antiracism work.
Because of the invitation to speak, I knew I would see David. Seeing Janice again, and sitting in on the meeting where she was unanimously approved, was a surprise.
In both instances, it was a blessing.
See you along the Trail.
