Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee. Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty! God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore thee, casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea; cherubim and seraphim falling down before thee, who wert, and art, and evermore shalt be.Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide thee, though the eye of sinfulness thy glory may not see, only thou art holy; there is none beside thee perfect in pow'r, in love, and purity.Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! All thy works shall praise thy name in earth and sky and sea. Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty! God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Eagle Poem By Joy HarjoTo pray you open your whole selfTo sky, to earth, to sun, to moonTo one whole voice that is you.And know there is moreThat you can’t see, can’t hear;Can’t know except in momentsSteadily growing, and in languagesThat aren’t always sound but otherCircles of motion.Like eagle that Sunday morningOver Salt River. Circled in blue skyIn wind, swept our hearts cleanWith sacred wings.We see you, see ourselves and knowThat we must take the utmost careAnd kindness in all things.Breathe in, knowing we are made ofAll this, and breathe, knowingWe are truly blessed because weWere born, and die soon within aTrue circle of motion,Like eagle rounding out the morningInside us.We pray that it will be doneIn beauty. In beauty.

At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you. If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. So if you would like to publically share please raise your hand. There are two ways to raise your hand. First is to use the raise your hand feature in Zoom. To do this click on participants and then the raise hand icon is in the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, we invite you to can do this the old fashion way and wave your hand in the video, our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone. You can also share here, in the chat.

I was lucky enough to spend a week in Paris with Garnet and Chris on a great family art/architecture tour. Garnet was a very special part of this multi-generational group. Her warmth, intelligence and kindness added so much and will not be forgotten. Garnet holds a special place in my heart and I am grateful I knew her even just a little. Rest in love and peace, dear Garnet. Hugs from afar to her loved ones. May her memory be a blessing and comfort to you all.

My family lived across the street from the Olsons. My sister DD and I babysat for Cliff and Garnet. As an adult my mother and Garnet arranged for my husband and I to spend a few days at their friends cottage in Madeline Island. Garnett and gave me a wonderful walking tour of Bayfield houses. She knew so much about the area. She always spoke to me like a friend and that day I felt like we were two girl friends enjoying the day. A few years later, I dropped in unexpected and asked her if she wanted to go to the uptowm art fair with me. She didn't seem surprised, even though there were no plans. We walked down and enjoyed another comfortable and joyful day. I truely loved both Garnet and Cliff
