A Beacon

Meryl Streep turns 69 today. Amidst this heart wrenching week, piled onto a dispiriting year that is tearing at the fibers of a nation, I’m reminded of goodness when I see Meryl Streep’s face. She embodies the possibility that one can live with great talent, humility and honor. In my faith tradition, for 25 hours starting at sundown each Friday, we practice hope that the impossible is possible. So as the sun sets tonight, I have to believe that we will heal.
