Tom French Bat Mitzvah murders (30) RE: Bat Mitzvah murders 18 Jan 02

Hi Guest Susan l.

Just picked up you note in a momemt of very deep unrest in my own life, which was not related to murder or religion. I am a Congregationalist, a Protestant Christian sect that is more of a historical run-off of the Boston Puritans than anything else. Recently I just quit playing organ for my wife's Episcopal Church, a really fine good group of people, because I felt I needed to get back to my origins. I went to my old childhood and early manhood church to find things a little more polarized than what I left. People are still out of touch with truth.

This felt tough to me because I really hoped to come back to something familiar, warm, a part of love. It isn't there in the forefront of the group, but perhaps it exists in the hearts of the individuals. I found many old and dear friends who were still there, as true and good as they have always been. I had a feeling that newer people probably had those same warm qualities, for I talked deeply with a person who I only knew as someone who went walking down the same road as I.

The incident you mentioned, and if it was only one person dead or even one person who was hurt in any way, is caused by someone out of touch. There are real problems with people who are in touch with religious institutions and out of touch others. Perhaps we all must be in touch we each other, rather than some group we associate with.
