Out of the Shadows, Onto the Journey
by Rev. Deborah Cayer, Lead Minister
My husband, granddaughter and I went on a half day rafting trip down the Nahantahala River on August 21. We were in a group of about 100 very lucky people who paddled downstream between mountains that rose up steeply on either side of the river. We rested in a cove as the color seemed to drain from the world. The air temperature dropped to 63 degrees as we sat in the gray semi-darkness and watched with wonder as the moon slid perfectly into position and blocked the sun. Though much anticipated and very exciting, I was surprised that I also felt twinges of discomfort.
