Tonight my thoughts are with Texas.

I am saddened by what has happened in Houston. Saddened and horrified. And, dammit, I’m proud of these United States for the way citizens have flocked to Texas to help rescue folks in the flood. There are many good places and good people in the world, but tonight my thoughts are with Texas and my fellow Americans who are showing the world how we do caring and sharing.

Ancient of days.

Maria and her family recently returned from Israel and Jordan, and she is generously sharing photos for posting on “We’ll See!”

These three clerics are standing in the doorway of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. I look at them and realize that I am seeing the embodiment of centuries of faith and tradition, perhaps reaching back thousands of years. We should always appreciate those who remind us of things which are constant and good, and beautiful.

Thank You Maria for sharing this photo (and more to come!) on “We’ll See!”
