Thank you all for supporting me from a far yesterday. Strength is found in sharing weakness. It sounds so paradoxical and yet it proves to be true again and again.
I wasn’t feeling all that brave yesterday. That is, not until I felt the wash of prayer and good thoughts from so many.
The meeting was productive. We both listened. I described who I am. I explained the work of PNC. I heard a litany of concerns (that actually were not as specific to PNC as originally stated). By the end we shook hands and agreed to think about how to do even more community events, for all, in the park. Neither of us feel as alone. And there were no tears, no shouting.
Can I hear an “Amen”?
