This feature is coordinated by The Post-Standard/Syracuse.com and InterFaith Works of CNY. Follow this theme and author posted Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. Rev. Anne Wichelns When I was a child growing up near the ocean, my father taught me the rhyme: "Red sun at night, sailors' delight; red sun in morning, sailors take warning." This verse gave me the key to read a pattern in nature and know that some mornings and nights are better than others for doing things (like sailing). It was also a way to know my father loved me enough to share this wisdom with me. Paying attention to nature can be a meditation like interacting with scripture, reading until the words speak within you, opening your heart to the patterns of life itself.

Bush, a patrician New Englander whose presidency soared with the coalition victory over Iraq in Kuwait, but then plummeted in the throes of a weak economy that led voters to turn him out of office after a single term, has died. He was 94.The World War II hero, who also presided during the collapse of the Soviet Union and the final months of the Cold War, died late Friday night, said family spokesman Jim McGrath. His wife of more than 70 years, Barbara Bush, died in April 2018.The son of a senator and father of a president, Bush was the man with the golden resume who rose through the political ranks: from congressman to U.N. ambassador, Republican Party chairman to envoy to China, CIA director to two-term vice president under the hugely popular Ronald Reagan.

But Bush would acknowledge that he had trouble articulating "the vision thing," and he was haunted by his decision to break a stern, solemn vow he made to voters: "Read my lips. … [Read more...] about George H.W.
