I am so lucky! This weekend I had the privilege of performing a second baby blessing for the Field Family. Summer is an angel, and Whitney has grown so beautifully. Sitting here in my office I am reading my emails, and thinking how lucky I am to be doing the work that I do. Upon my desk is a crown given to me by Alexis, a precocious young lady who captured my heart. I thank God for the gift of my work. I thank God for the gift of all the souls I meet.

A World Alliance of Interfaith Clergy Conference April 19th -21st , 2013 Opening night Keynote announced!
The Art of Ceremony and Ritual
Susanna Macomb, well known author, speaker and interfaith minister will be the opening speaker at our AWAIC conference 2013 with the art of ceremony and ritual—how we can best personalize these major rites of passage-making them extraordinary and completely reflective of the people they serve. Susanna will also address interfaith, intercultural ceremonies. Done properly, an interfaith service is an enlightening unifying experience rooted in love and respect. Macomb is fond of saying, “Two traditions, twice blessed!”
