People of Vision,
As I write to you, the air quality index in San Francisco is down to 87 from a high of 197 today, Foster City is 156. Normally, I can see the Pacific and twenty-six miles out to the Farallon Islands Marine Reserve. Today I can’t see a mile in the distance. My heart goes out to all those who suffer the wildfires in Oregon, and I give thanks for the first responders in the midst of it all. Please stay inside as much as possible until the air clears.
This Sunday, we have the gift of hearing my former pastor, mentor, many years friend, and now colleague Rev. Dr. Penny Nixon in the pulpit sharing a word. The title of her sermon is “Binoculars, Lenses, and Mirrors”. She will be reflecting upon Mark 12:38-44. Given the title, I can only imagine the visionary wisdom that she will share with Island United.
I look forward to seeing you at 10 am on Balclutha or Zoom. Invite a friend to hear this fantastic prophetic voice.
Looking forward to seeing you,
Rev. Michael Cronin
P.S. Please plan to stay after service for Penny’s presentation: “Affordable Housing on Faith Land: New opportunities for the Church to embrace justice!”
