Sermon, the ending

January 3, 2011
Lake Placid News
To the editor

As you know, at times limited space considerations sometimes result in last

minute cuts to articles. It happens. Dear reader, such a cut took out the concluding paragraph of my column, “Have You Ever Written a sermon,” (LPN, Dec. 3) and in this case, the point of the story. It should have concluded with:

“Bottom line, being fully present is hard work; we miss half of what’s going

on; and, small decisions can have major consequences. These observations I had to then attempt to relate back to the Lesson and the message of the first Sunday of Advent. One thing I learned through taking on this challenge is that our pastors, priests and rabbis deserve our attention as they try to

help us chart these troubled waters of our own making.”

The point I had hoped to convey is that our rabbis, preachers and pastors,

people like the Rev Milton Dudley, give a lot of time, thought and attention

each week in an effort to help us make sense

of life and muddle through thismess we have made. Not only do they deserve our attention, but our thanks. We are blessed to have these people who give so much of themselves to help make life better for so many.
