Finding Your Priest Quickly

CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith from a Place of Winter for the Years of Winter… ©

In the awful days of dictator Idi Amin in Uganda, a precursor of the Hutu-Tutsi slaughters in Rwanda later, the Church of England asked the Ugandan bishop what they could do to help.

“Send us 100 clerical collars,” he answered.

That seemed terribly irrelevant, but…

“When they come to murder our people,” the bishop explained, “it happens so suddenly. We have no warning. Our people need to be able to find their priests quickly.”

John Robert McFarland

The “place of winter” mentioned in the title line is Iron Mountain, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, where life is defined by winter even in the summer! [This phrase is explained in the post for March 20, 2014.]

I have also started an author blog, about writing, in preparation for the publication, by Black Opal Books, of my novel, VETS, in 2015.

I tweet as yooper1721.
