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


“Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all its sons away; they fly, forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day.”  (Isaac Watts)  Days wax and wane; a life begins, develops and dies; entire civilizations thrive and decline.  Time has a fractal quality about it: no matter the degree of magnification, we see the same overall shape, the same cycle of coming into existence and then going away.  Hours, years, millennia…  makes no difference.  And we are both observers of the cycles and participants in them.
