A wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner in Channing Hall - delicious dishes and conversations. If you went away hungry, it was your own fault!
White Lies, an NPR series about an unsolved murder of a Unitarian minister, is being broadcast at 6 pm on Sundays. It is also available as a podcast. It is riveting.
Glenn Hummel provided great music today. Lyssa Jenkens gave a wonderful testimonial. And Beth Dana gave a deeply meaningful sermon. But I wasn’t able to get past the shock and sadness of learning that Chuck Moore had passed away. For more than 20 years, Chuck quietly and humbly served as the Executive Director of the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra, one of the finest youth programs in the world. I think my son Daniel would agree with me that the 2 years he had the privilege to be in this program was the best experience of all his school years. When Daniel was in the orchestra, of all the hundreds of kids in the GDYO programs, Chuck knew his name and always had kind words. The last time I saw Chuck was in the choir loft where he also humbly served this church for years. Daniel told me that he saw Chuck just last month at a DSO performance. This was such sad news.
Is everyone OK? Does anyone need help from the storm?
Creative Community meets on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays at noon. Today was an exceptional meeting with regular members (7), new members (2) and 1 returning member. The sharings were wonderful. Experiences, cornbread, feelings, jewelry, cut stones, paper mache chicken, poetry, pottery and more. What a delight. Come join us.
A poem that a friend sent my way, seems apt these days: *Cataclysm* It begins subtly: the maple withdraws from the birch tree. The porcupine wants nothing to do with the skunk. Fish unschool, sheep unflock to separately graze. Clouds meanwhile declare to the sky they have nothing to do with the sky, which is not visible as they are, nor knows the trick of turning into infant, tumbling pterodactyls. The turtles and moonlight? Their long arrangement is over. As for the humans. Let us not talk of the humans. Let us speak of their language. The first person singular condemns the second person plural for betrayals neither has words left to name. The fed consider the hungry and stay silent. —Jane Hirshfield
Had a great time tonight hosting a Potluck with the 4th Tuesday Circle! What a great group of people! Missed you KitKat Lake!
My name is Evangelist Ifeanyichukwu Ota. I distribute gospel tracts in hospitals, markets, schools, orphanage Homes, as well as on the streets. There are many lost souls and people eager to read the gospel tracts that they receive.
Took the morning to clean up White Rock Lake after the recent rains. Mother Nature kicking into gear on Mother’s Day! Beautiful day! 🌷😎😀💕
