Difficult Farewell

Two decades ago my doctor moved from Ontario to the United States. Back then, many Ontario doctors were not happy with the Canadian health care system. Some decided to head south to the United States where they only had to deal with insurance companies.

When the word got out that my doctor was leaving, there was a huge hue and cry in the village and surrounding countryside. There were letters in the local paper. There were personal pleadings to the doctor. But the time approached and we all knew that his decision was final.

Online communion to be thoroughly discussed

It may strike some people as serious a matter as “How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?”, but the United Methodist Church in the U.S. has just finished a consultation about celebrating the Christian church’s core ritual, called the Sacrament of Holy Communion or the Lord’s Supper, online.

Struggling to be faithful.Oct 20 2013

 

Yesterday I went for a run. It was a special run for me. 

Yesterday I ran 21 kilometers, which is a half marathon. 

I didn’t run that far on my own. There were over 600 of us on this run. 

Half marathons are a very popular race. 

With every kind of social group, races have  own trads & habits & norms When you sign up for a half marathon, you get your bib number, 

but you also get a race shirt. 

Now some people will wear that special race shirt for the run.

Church of the Larger Fellowship

Since I know there are some here who are interested in Unitarian Universalism, I thought I would throw out a couple links that are quite helpful in seeing some of the breadth and diversity of "The Chosen Faith" (as it was termed in a book many years back).

U.S. Senate Chaplain one of the world's most influential pulpits

Imagine, for a moment, you are a U.S. senator. The United States Senate has a designated chaplain who offers prayer at the opening of every daily session.

But the assembly is deadlocked. There is no agreement on anything. Partisan politics rule the day. The U.S. government is shut down and employees are furloughed. National parks are closed. Government services at a complete standstill.
