Yesterday, I, along with most of the Presbyterian Church (USA), was saddened to learn of the death of our immediate past Moderator of the General Assembly, Cynthia Bolbach. One of the best (and first) blogs in eulogy I read about her after her death is this one from Mark Koenig.
I really took this one from Theresa Cho to heart also, in this season of Advent. She reminded me that life and death are indivisibly intertwined.
Fittingly, the lectionary Psalm for today also reminded me that “God alone is my rock and salvation, blest be the name of the Lord!”
