I received a note this week from an Anchorite. An experience during the week prompted him to share some thoughts with me about last week's sermon: Why Gather On Sundays?
What he wrote was authentic and poetic. It was an encouragement to me, and I wanted to pass it on.
We need to be in amongst others physically,
in the same place, just to know we're not alone.
Not alone with our problems.
Not alone with our self doubts.
Not alone with our hope and faith.
You and many others at Anchor continue making me feel not alone.
I would have said everybody, but I've got to open up more, to more people;
then that whole communality thing just gets better.
