News from St. Francis 5/27 – 6/3/18

Food for Thought. . .
This week has been a tough week at St. Francis. The unexpected deaths of Diane Faxon and Russ Davis in our community have left many shocked, heartbroken, and deeply saddened. Powerless is also an experience that many feel at a time like this. What can we do? What could we have done? There is so much that we want to do, and, often, so little that we can do in ultimate terms. However, the strength of community and the heart of hospitality is something that continues to find expression, especially in difficult times. I am deeply appreciative of the selflessness and willingness of so many to offer support and help with yesterday’s reception and logistics for both families and services in a number of ways. While the loss is still painfully fresh, your gift in these moments is what we are called to do in life. Thank you!
