Pastor's letter

Several years ago a good friend gave me a framed quote by author and theologian Frederick

Buechner. In the intervening years since I received it, it has set on my desk, on a bookshelf, on

a window ledge and on a side table. I recently moved it from what had been a temporary place

for the last few months to its more permanent place on the top of my bedroom dresser. It is

now among the first things I see/read in the morning and among the last things I see/read at

night. I’ve decided a twice a day reminder of the message is probably a good thing for me.


Buechner writes,


             Listen to your life. See it for the fathomless mystery that it is. In the boredom

             and pain of it no less than in the excitement and gladness: touch, taste, smell

             your way to the holy and hidden heart of it because in the last analysis all

             moments are key moments, and life itself is grace.


I hope to see you soon,


Eric
