From the Minister
Cicero, the great Roman politician and philosopher, called joy the simplest form of gratitude. That feels true to me. So let me start this month that builds toward Thanksgiving meals and Christmas spirit by wishing all of you a bounteous portion of joy as the days get steadily shorter and colder.
I fear, though, that we will miss out on a lot of reasons for gratitude if we look only for what brings us joy. And we need more than the available joy. The month begins with an election which, at best, will shift the political ground enough to offer slightly more protection to the most vulnerable among us. But the 2020 presidential campaign will begin in earnest as soon as the votes are counted. Everything that tears us apart will still be with us. (857) 274-9095
