Act justly.

Love mercy.

Walk humbly with your God. 

 

 

 

Sandra Baran, PCF Coordinator

Pax Christi Florida is delighted to announce that Sandra Baran, a long-time member of Pax Christi Florida and Pax Christi USA and resident of Jupiter, Florida, has answered the call for leadership of our movement, following the close of Nancy O’Byrne’s term.  On September 24, 2020, several former PCF council members met to discuss the reactivation of Pax Christi Florida and to affirm Sandra as the new coordinator of our movement.

The following will be serving on the PCF council: John Frank, Amy Finn Schultz, Phyllis Turner Jepson, Dave Montrose, David O’Byrne, Nancy O’Byrne, Barbara Richardson and Anne Richter.

Sandra and the council members will be meeting soon via Zoom to reflect and to make plans to re-organize.  Stay tuned!

Congratulations, Sandra!

 

 

 

Pandemic,

What if you thought of it
as the Jews consider Sabbath –
the most sacred of times?

Cease from travel.

Cease from buying and selling.

Give up, just for now,
on trying to make the world
different than it is.

Sing. Pray. Touch only those
to whom you commit your life.

Center down.

And when your body has become still,
reach out with your heart.

Know that we are connected
in ways that we are terrifying and beautiful.
(We can hardly deny it now.)

Know that our lives
are in one another’s hands.
(Surely, that has become clear.)

Do not reach out your hands.

Reach out your heart.

Reach out your words.

Reach out all the tendrils
of compassion that move, invisibly,
where we cannot touch.

Promise the world your love –
for better or for worse,
in sickness and in health,
so long as we all shall live.

– Lynn Ungar 3/11/20

i want to sit on this rock with you awhile, friend, think out loud a bit. first up, these new readings i’ve bumped into that continue to shake me awake. ever since starting out on my bike three years ago for mother earth, mother’s been whispering in my ear something fierce. after climate ride california last year i can think of little else. scattered news of old that held me in its addictive clutches fails to move me anymore. you move me, mother, front & center at last.
