How are we welcoming the strangers in our midst? What are we doing to spread the love of Christ to those who come to our Chapel? I pray that we reflect that love as we welcome the stranger during our upcoming Holy Week, Easter, and beyond. I pray that we make the stranger’s encounter with us just so good.
In the past few weeks, we have had three funerals here at the Chapel of the Cross. At one of the three funerals, a parishioner told me a story. He once asked The Reverend David Christian what he liked about being a priest. Was it the beautiful weddings or is it baptizing the cute babies? David replied, no. It was funerals he liked best.
I have always associated the month of February with Valentine’s Day and hearts, however the kind of “hearts” I have associated with the holiday have always tended to be of the chocolate variety. So when I was offered the opportunity to provide anesthesia on a congenital heart medical mission trip during the month of February, “hearts” took on a new meaning for the holiday.
