  1. I noticed that you are listed as the author for meditations in October 2017 forward day by day. I pray that you and those you minister to are safe and your needs are being met during such a difficult time. In Jesus name I pray, amen.

  2. I’ve just read your reflection, Mind the Gap, and wanted to say thanks for commenting on the lectionary’s annoying habit of protecting us from difficult sections of the Bible. I’m loving your reflections generally, but that one deserves a special hoorah!

    1. I enthusiastically second Nancy’s comment and commend you for your reflection on the “gap” in 1Corinthians.

  3. Dear Rev. Eileen, Thank you for opening yourself up to the Holy Spirit as you have guided us with your Forward Day By meditations. Your words have inspired me. God’s grace and strength be with you and the people of Houston and all places where people are recovering from the storms of life.
