A small gathering of friends came to my first liturgy in Albuquerque. Carol Giannini, ARCWP priest con presided with me. Lisa Lucero was the drumming leader.
The reading from the Gospel of Matthew said "You are the salt of the earth. You are the light of the world."
Our first reading was the poem/song by Leonard Cohen called "The Window."
Our dialog homily took us to another quote from Cohen, "There is a cracked in everything, that's how the light gets in." We even have a painting of this quote (shown in the picture of us).
We shared a potluck meal after the liturgy. Dennis Kane, Nancy Costea, Lenore Wang, and Capo (our dog) were part of this warm gathering. We look forward to many more liturgies and hope that more people will join us.
