Dear Sisters and Brothers,
Blessings be upon all of you! Here we are in the middle of our summer season – hot, humid, thunder storms – a typical summer for Maryland. I do hope that all of you will be able to take some time off during the summer. I do hope that you might be able to get away for a bit. I will not be taking my summer break until mid-September this year. So I have a while to go. But regardless of when you take the time off – it is just so good to do so – to refresh and to renew your spirit. Enjoy the summer!
