Tuesday, March 8, 2011: Father Richard McKeon
Today is Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras. Snow is melting into mud and we saw returning geese flying in formation this morning. Springtime is imminent. I am thinking about Mardi Gras in New Orleans, outrageously festive as a Jewish Purim celebration. I am thinking of Fat Tuesday being Shrove Tuesday, which brings Lent. As I prepare to meet Father Richard McKeon, the new Rector of the Church of the Messiah in Rhinebeck, I am also thinking of Easter and of Passover. In this season of economic and political difficulties, of Spring around the corner, I am thinking about people coming out of Bondage to Freedom.
