What I'm reading on my phone...

The Great Passage by Shion Miura is one of those novels that remind me why I read Japanese fiction, one of those delightful tales where plot serves the characters, unlike most western novels where characters serve the plot. It is a story about the power of words, about the tenacity of love, about the resilience of friendship over time. Juliet Winters Carpenter's marvelous translation makes it all come alive for readers in English. Henry's books .

The Spirit does...

Six years ago, when I first entered the door of Church of the Transfiguration in Saluda, North Carolina, I was a stranger in town, having been gone for forty years. Almost everyone I'd ever known here had died or moved away in my absence.

Improbably, this recovering Quaker found a spiritual home and family here among Episcopalians. They still allow me to worship with them as of this morning. I've been invited to give the homily next Sunday. That says more about the generosity and forbearance of this congregation than it does about my fitness as a speaker.

The Spirit indeed moves in mysterious ways.
