In a recent Staff meeting, Rev. Kirsty DePree led our opening Devotionals by reading a passage of scripture in which the writer spoke of being thirsty and of seeking a quenched spirit through God (Psalm 42). Then she asked us to meditate on the questions:

“Spiritually/Emotionally, are you thirsty, satisfied, or somewhere in between? And, what are you thirsty for?”

Recently I attended a Friday midday organ concert at Grace Church in the East Village. The organist performed selections from J.S. Bach. That’s why I went.
