    Dear Ms Jisunkim,
    Thrilled to hear that ESR can attract such a shining star of the spirit! I was class of 1980, MMin. Have served various gatherings of seekers. Speaking at a UU congregation Sunday on the prophetic mission of Joanna Macy, a Buddhist scholar, systems theorist, and deep ecology advocate. I’m mostly working out a universalist and largely naturalistic spiritual life. Unprogrammed Friend, loving the Light! Hope you come speak at First Friends Indianapolis!
