Got two cringe-inducing emails last night.

One, I Replied All with a pointer to Snopes.

The second one was about the physician assisted suicide legislation which is going up before the Vermont legislation. I forwarded it to Pr. Lisa, mostly because I was feeling sad and cringey both about the stance the person was taking and about the way they were framing it. She emailed me back this morning with a really nice email. And at least 5 other people chimed in on the email chain, so I feel much less alone. (And am also glad to be relieved of the obligation to articulate a response in this moment.)

Lisa ended her email with: "Blessings on you and your heart and soul and integrity, Elizabeth! It is a constant inspiration to me of why I do this ministry and work." ♥
