Thought for October 2019

‘Autumn stands as an epiphany to the truth that all things are passing and even in the passing there is beauty…… This is a decaying season, but the rotting ritual that surrounds us has another face.  Compost and mulch are food for the soil. There is life in the dying….. As we face the painful reality that nothing lasts forever, autumn teaches us humility.  We learn to honor the dying.  Everything is moving, flowing on to something new.’ Macrina Wiederkehr and Joyce Rupp
