Please pray for friends of mine

If you come here and you’ve never actually met me, you’re probably already blog-friends with Eileen. She is losing her adopted-mom (literally, work friend) to terminal cancer.

I know the space that adopted parents fill; I know how much I love mine. Please, go pray for Eileen and J.

Mother Laura has been extremely supportive of my journey, recently. She has a preliminary interview in November for her dream theology teaching job, as well as several important writing deadlines coming up.

Garnabus and Fuego are friends of mine from seminary. They live and work in a neighboring diocese now. They were just here for a new-clergy event at the Ranch, which is another home for both of them. (Fuego said when she saw me, “It’s great to see someone who loves the Ranch as much as we do.”) I hadn’t seen them since May, and it was great fun visiting with them, and their daughter M, whom they're in the process of adopting.

They got some difficult news right as they were preparing to go home. I don’t know what they’ll make public, and I don't want to break their confidentiality. But hold them in the light, please.

Thank you.

Ummmm. or maybe I should be saying OMMMMM or whatever the proper meditation word is - for me it is hesed - mercy, steadfast love! And, that's how I'm praying for those whom you love and for you.

Good word, Sharecropper; I'll use it. Thank you! (And thanks for praying for me, also.)
