A note to Highland readers: One year after Megan died, I talked about the year of grief. I was hoping that it would help give words to others who live with grief of one sort or another. And it seemed to. Then, the five-year anniversary fell on a Sunday, so in 1999 I reported again. I described it as being a scout coming back to report on what the trail ahead is like. This year the ten-year anniversary also falls on a Sunday, but that day (Nov. 21) is our annual food offering, one of the best days of the year at Highland. Diane and I are going to quietly slip out of town for the weekend. So this Sunday, I'm going to talk about grief. I'll again try to make sure this isn't just about us and our story. (I'm still hoping Diane will share a testimony and offer part of her perspective, but so far she's not inclined to. As I mentioned, November isn't her favorite month.) I mention this here, because some of you have friends and neighbors who have experienced loss and grief who might be able to identify. Please see if they'll come with you. I'll stay up front after both services to visit as long as people want to. The title of the message is "By Their Scars You Shall Know Them."
