Monday’s Mania: A Haiku

Monday’s mania
Subdued by evening calmness
Autumn night’s stillness

Frenetic days:

I’m not fond of them.

Such is life.

Respond, work,

Move along.


Violence Bets Violence

A message from the bishop of my Synod in response to the recent horror in Las Vegas :

Violence begets violence.
Peace begets peace!
We must be about peace.
+ Bishop Kirby Unti


I found this a perfectly poetical statement, and a powerful part of his email introducing this letter.
