Today is Earth Day. This reminder came from the ELCA Churchwide offices and I share it here:
Also on this day came the honor of being with a family at the Funeral Home as they make arrangements and decisions for remembering and celebrating their loved one. This is such a special, holy time to walk with others - sharing memories, tears, prayer, and often laughter. I always feel privileged to be with families in these holy moments, even as I am sad they are necessary. But it's just another reason why I love and am thankful for what I do.
