My morning gratitude for:
- Elana, simply for her desire for me to be as happy as possible, with job and parenthood.
- Chelsea Sargent, for the way she is a mix of both the preachers wife and a minister herself. At our annual budget meeting last night I was quite impressed by the way she sees her role and commitment to the church, but also having a voice for the voiceless and being a minister to us in that way.
- Jo Sandifer, our retired preachers’ wife. I love her honesty. She tells it like it is and appreciates simple things like removing water damaged tiles or the paint peeling on the church but also supports her husband (and does it herself) as he continues supporting some of the most vulnerable in the congregation. But she does it all with a loving honesty and unassuming air.
