Something to ponder....Re: Divine Alchemy. This beautiful poem/prayer was found by the body of a dead child at the Ravensbruck death camp during a very dark period of our collective history. “ O Lord, remember not only the men and women of good will, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they inflicted on us; remember the fruits we have bought, thanks to this suffering – our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, our courage, our generosity, the greatness of heart which has grown out of all this, and when they come to judgment let all the fruits which we have borne be their forgiveness.” Page 73-74 in The Wisdom Jesus by Cynthia Bourgeault.
Thanks to all who attended and enjoyed our Bazaar and Bake Sale – and thanks to those who took part, helping to support the work of the church.
