An unexpected journey
We have been participating in the Way of Ministry program of the School of the Spirit this year. We have enjoyed the opportunities to travel to Philadelphia together and to share the experience. Now I have become his traveling companion on a journey that neither one of us expected. In the beginning of January he shared with our support committee that he was going to have a CAT scan the next day because of some neurological symptoms he was experiencing. What they found was an inoperable tumor growing deep in his brain.
He is undergoing radiation and chemotherapy treatments and some of his symptoms have improved. It has been a privilege to see the courage and grace with which he is facing his situation. He talks about his sense of the presence of God with him. He tells about waking in the night and taking his sleeping bag and sitting on his deck watching the stars and being filled with joy. Just being with him, I have learned a lot about what is real and what is not. We had been looking forward to opportunities to share our journeys together. This is not the journey we had been expecting to take together now.
Please pray for Bill and his family.
Blessings to all.
