#397 On #day15 of my #placement I asked the congregation two questions before I preached: where would they go in the universe if they could go anywhere, and who would they meet if they could meet anyone. The responses were a mixture of #aspirations and #sadness. Today I #pray for each of the people and places represented in these thoughts, for the lives that could be and the lives that have been, for dictatorships which have torn families apart, and for loved ones long since missed. Amen.
