Memorial Day

Note that the original purpose of this special day was reconciliation. At the end of the Civil War, it was a time for coming together to honor those who had made the ultimate sacrifice. We’d like to see the dual purposes of this day — remembrance and reconciliation — resurrected.

“Loving God, we pray to you for people of every race, religion, language and nation. Help us always to respect and love each other for You have made us all. Let those who have given their lives for the sake of justice, peace and freedom be rewarded by your generous love. May their families and friends, and we who honor them today, remember them with love, now and always. Amen” Rev. Ron Gagne

Albert Einstein 3-14-18

Birthday of Albert Einstein

The great genius Albert Einstein was nicknamed by his parents as a child, der Depperte, or, the dopey one. Albert was so unusually slow in learning that his parents consulted a doctor about their young son who had such difficultly in speaking. Einstein later explained that his slow verbal development actually was an advantage since it allowed him ‘to observe with wonder’ the everyday things that others took for granted.

“It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity.”

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

“The most beautiful and most profound emotion we can experience is the sensation of the mystical.”
