This afternoon (Tuesday) I will attend the field education fair at Harvard Divinity School. I hope to find a student willing to work with us this year on some of our ongoing projects. Pray I run into an interested student who owns a car!

Thank you notes
Mary Ann facilitated a fine forum discussion on issues of racism. It was well attended and the exercises allowed us to share stories of our lives with one another. I noted a high level of interest and passion around this topic so we’ll follow up. Following our Sunday of reflection on racism, and the forum in which we listened to one another’s stories, Heather sent a link to a talk by Chimamanda Adichie on the danger of a single story. http://www.ted.com/talks/chimamanda_adichie_the_danger_of_a_single_story
Emilie continues to care for the gardens. She has been aerating the soil and carefully tending to the plants.
A number of you have visited Ruth Forinash. By your efforts you keep her within our congregation, and as you sit with her you receive words of wisdom and faith from a remarkable person.
Nate Johnson broke a bone in his foot so say a prayer of healing for him, please.
