News from St. Francis 10/14 – 10/21/18

At times we get disenfranchised, dissatisfied, or downright disgruntled with the world around us. The pressures that exist in the world, the preponderance of negative and depressing news, and the uncertainty of life itself weigh heavy upon us. There are moments, however, where we see a bit more clearly the wonder and mystery and promise of the world. The recent PBS Nature program on Animal Reunions is nothing short of inspired. While it may be poo pooed by some as hyperbole and wishful thinking, it offers a powerful glimpse at the connection that humans have with the other creatures of the creation. We are definitely not alone in our emotional make-up and the need for love and security. If you did not see it, this episode is well worth the viewing. You can see it here.
