Book, candle, no bell

At Ecumenical Advocacy Days, I became the quasi-official Presbyterian photographer,
taking photos at the Compassion, Peace and Justice Training Day,
during Ecumenical Advocacy Days itself,
and even on the cruise.

I snapped this photo during a workshop led by
Rebecca Barnes- Davies,
PC(USA) associate for Environmental Ministries.

I have no idea what the photo means,
but it seems kind of intriguing.

At least to me.

See you along the Trail.

I lit a candle

Peter Tibi, from South Sudan, and I visited the Cathedral Church of St. John Divine. It has fascinated me ever since I learned of Madeleine L’Engle‘s connection with the place. Peter and I spent over an hour there. It will take many visits to experience all the cathedral offers.

I noticed two places in the cathedral where people had lit candles for people and situations in New York City and around the world. The glow warmed me. And challenged me.

Upon returning to the Shire on the Hudson, I lit a candle of my own: a candle for all those people, all those places, all those situations, all those circumstances for whom no candles have been lit. The candle burns not for who I know nor for what I know. It burns to remind me of those I do not know – those I forget – those I ignore.

See you along the Trail.
