September 24 - Rev. Phillip Hewitt, "The Lure of the Spirt" Over the summer I have been reading a fascinating book, In the Beginning was the Spirit, by Diarmuid O'Murchu -- fascinating because he picks up and develops so many of the themes that have absorbed me in recent years. He says he has made "a pilgrimage into horizons that stretch the inner spirit toward the Great Spirit of unlimited possibilities... And we follow this lure, because nothing else is likely to satisfy the hunger and thirst that sustain our inner being.." My own thoughts take off from there.

October 22 - Rev. Dr. Peter J. Luton, "Autumnal Hints" There are certain powers that one ought not to resist. The sheer beauty of the autumn woods is one of them.
The Rev. Dr. Peter J. Luton served East Shore Unitarian Church in Bellevue, WA for 21 years and the First Universalist Church of Yarmouth, ME (five miles north of "the real Portland") for 12 before that. His accomplishments are too vast to mention and his failures speak for themselves. For the past year Peter and his wife Linda Berg live in happy retirement in Bellingham where he reads for pleasure and not sermon fodder, gardens, volunteers twice a week at the Food Bank and walks their year old Schnoodle puppy who fills the empty nest.
