Solstice, havdalah, and other seasons and separations

Summer solstice, havdalah (separation), and the end of A Season of Service and Celebration in honor of Bishop Shaw.

My bishop, the Rt. Rev. M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE (Society of Saint John the Evangelist), of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, is retiring this year. An openly gay man, he has been a truly powerful ally for transgender social justice, including supporting MA’s passed Trans Equal Rights Law and current Trans Equal Access Bill, and hosting the Boston Trans Day of Remembrance at the Cathedral Church of Saint Paul.

I also pray for Bishop Tom's healing -- he has been undergoing treatment for brain cancer since his diagnosis last May.
