BONUS BLOG: Grief, Dread, and Love

April 20, 2019

Kenneth Carder. The man is a treasure, a colleague, a mentor, and a phenomenon with his wife in her memory care facility. Today he wrote this, and I’m again grateful for his carte blanche to share this with you here —

I sit in the silence beside Linda’s bed as dawn’s first light emerges; living between memories of what has been and uncertainty of what will be.

Grief for what is no more; dread for what will be.

It’s the lived experience of Holy Saturday!

Love keeps vigil between grief and hope!

— Have I mentioned that he’s also a retired United Methodist Bishop?
