Food for Thought. . .
Another wonderful reflection from our Vestry meeting Compline service. Thank you, Eileen Hynes . . .

Some time ago I expressed my reluctance to share the Vestry Reflection with another long-time member. She told me to just choose a topic and go with it. Sound advice.
When I sat down to think about it, there were so many topics to choose from – the difficulty changed to making the choice. Certainly, over the past year, COVID-19, Immigration Problems at our Border, Racial Justice would be appropriate topics but my heart favored a more celebratory subject. It's May, spring has finally arrived and it is the month of Mother’s Day. A day we celebrate a very important person/people in our lives and families. To read more, click here. . .
Link of the Week
It is a few weeks late, but it ties in nicely with Eileen Hynes' reflection. The SNL cold open with Miley Cyrus singing the classic, Light of a Clear Blue Morning, from her godmother Dolly Parton adds a bit of heft to the humor. . .
Going Deeper
An engaging podcast that asks the question, "Does Teaching America Its Racist Make It Less Racist?" The Argument is a product of the New York Times. Here progressive Michelle Goldberg debates with conservative John McWhorter. More light. Less heat.
