On New Year’s Sunday, Henry Neufeld introduced a beautiful prayer (in last Sunday’s bulletin) written by Archbishop Oscar Romero. This churchman worked on stopping the cruel civil war in El Salvador, was cheered by soldiers when saying they did not have to follow unjust order to kill peasants, he plead with the USA to stop sending military aid to his country, and offered his Christian people hope through his weekly radio broadcasts. He was assassinated in 1985. After providing us the historical background for the prayer, Henry had us read it silently and comment on ideas that caught our attention. Many people contributed insightful and helpful observations. Afterwards, Helmut and Hildegard Lemke led us in communion, giving a brief meditation on the elements. [JEK]
