Bishop John Shelby Spong ~ June 16, 1931 – September 12, 2021
Bishop Spong provided a much needed place for those of us who did not connect with traditional theology. We love you Bishop Spong. You will be missed! Funeral services will be held at St. Peter’s, Morristown, NJ and at St. Paul’s, Richmond, VA. Dates and times will be announced as soon as they are available

As leaves that softly fall

From the Boundless Life collection

As leaves that softly fall to earth

We let go of hate and fear.

As autumn winds strip branches bare

We explore each smile and tear.

As seeds are spread both far and wide

We build hope and not despair.
