Gitmo Bay

A dear friend of mine, a Unitarian Universalist Navy Chaplain, has been deployed to Guantanamo Bay. She will be serving the U.S. forces stationed there and also in the detention center.

She writes that she's looking forward to it.

Lord have mercy. Well, that's why her brave, intrepid soul is doing that work, and I'm not.

She asks for letters, as it's not likely that she will be able to access e-mail during her 7 month deployment. All mail will be carefully screened, so she asks for news from home and inspirational quotes and stories that keep you going.

(Romans 8:38-39, for a start)

If you'd like her address, e-mail me.

Damned if I haven't gone and cried off all my eyeliner.

PB, what's that Romans quote again? (The letter only has 16 chapters.)

Right now, I'm printing up several envelopes with Our Mutual Friend's new address to keep me honest about writing.

Dear Peacebang:
I just pulled my little Nestle-Aland ed. of the NT out of my sagging tweed pocket, and there isn't any such text as Romans 22:38-39. Just what text did you have in mind for the lady in question?
