This morning I was witness to holy leave taking.
A church member, vibrant of soul and young of age, breathed her last.
She was surrounded by the resonant beauty of her fine life: Her partner, mom and sister acted as resurrection midwives. She had prayed that her death might be grace filled. And so it was.
All day today the church has been alive with the sound of music.
Tomorrow we will celebrate the marriage of two amazing folk. They have collected a tribe of singers and dancers who will lead us in a full-hearted celebration of love. There is music happening in most every space available. Our day care children are in awe, as am I.
Love. It’s what life is all about.
Today as Lori let go and tomorrow as Drew and Cassie cleave it is love that moves the loosing and binding that is life.
Born in the heart of the Holy.
Savored by the wise.
