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

Praise and Gratitude

 
Praise and gratitude go hand-in-hand.  Both are a natural response to our recognition that, as the old saying goes, “God is God.  You are not.”  These days that’s almost counter-cultural!  But the deep humility that arises from our understanding of the interdependence of all life — including ourselves — is truly the beginning of wisdom.  Praise is gratitude writ large, out loud.
