Your post moves me in so many ways, especially seeing the photo of your grandmother's Book of Common Prayer. My mother was born in 1916. I have her 1928 Book of Common Prayer/ Hymnal. My mother's mother's father was at one time the president of the Theosophical Society in Boston. After my grandparents married in a Unitarian church in Boston, they moved to Minnesota and lived in a small town where the choice was between the Assembly of God and the Episcopal church. My grandmother chose the Episcopal church.

Beautiful imagery in Psalm 92.

Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.
