Vernon Howard gave a talk with the title “Transfer Island.” It was about a place where people went until the boat came to take them to the other shore. He was speaking about the inner journey, but this is also applicable to our mortal one.
Today we learned that Bill Lindley’s transfer came. In his last message he said that he was awaiting transportation, having been diagnosed with late-stage cancer. We all hoped to hear from him again.
Let us sit here together in a communal silence, bathing in the beatitude of Bill. Go ahead and let your eyes moisten and your heart soften. Nothing wrong with that. And then let us be “up and doing,” whatever it is that we do best. That is the way to keep love alive.
