As we enter the pledge season at St. Francis, we ask individuals to reflect on What St. Francis Means to Me. Jim Quinn offered these remarks during our 70th Anniversary celebration last Sunday, November 13. His words are very compelling, particularly in the environment we find ourselves today. Mark asked me to kick off Stewardship season by saying a few words about What St. Francis means to me, and I’d like to state it as simply as I can. St. Francis is my bedrock foundation – this community, you. This is where I turn when I feel weak and frustrated and beaten down. You may not know it, but you restore my faith in humanity. You nurture me back to sanity and give me confidence to walk back out into the world and try to do just a little bit better every day.
