Lessons learned...be kind to a stranger

Yesterday was a very hard day. I was coming off the high of an amazing weekend with the Presiding Bishop. The Most Rev. Michael Curry was in town for three days and visited all five of our downtown churches for various events. I highly recommend you watch his Saturday address and Sunday sermon at Grace church (starts at the 39 minute mark).

But yesterday was about celebrating the life of an amazing lady who had died too young. Vicki Warren Washburn was the mother of a friend. She was one of those ladies that always had a smile on her face, a kind word, and enough energy to fuel a city. Cancer took her from us much too quickly.
