Message from the Sr. Warden Perhaps one of the most important things we can learn from the current state of affairs is that there are some things over which we have no control. That’s hard to accept, especially for those of us that live with the illusion that we are in control. Losing...

Message from the Sr. Warden No one comes to me for gardening advice for a very good reason. I currently have spots in my garden where I can’t even get weeds to grow. We moved here in July of ’08 at which time I promptly planted some azaleas. As I live and breathe, those two bushes...

Message from the Sr. Warden: April 2020

Posted by Sharon Moravits on

What is the difference between fear and being afraid?  I am unreasonably, inexplicably, irrevocably, unconditionally, wholeheartedly afraid of spiders. Always have been.  I don’t know why but their creepy, hairy-legged bodies that appear out of nowhere (on the bath towel slung...

When I arrived at St. Theodore’s there was a painting (I think in the Library) that is a depiction of Jesus laughing. Now his laugh wasn’t just a smiling chuckle. It was a throw your head back, mouth wide open, from the belly, boisterous laugh.  While I am not partial to such...
