October 2, 2016. Today Pastor Penny talks about the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. He was eccentric and impractical, but after spending time in prison he had a spiritual conversion, giving away all his possessions and preaching repentance. Is it possible that in our society today, we have too many possessions taking up our time and energy? Taking away from our families, our communities, and our world? How can we face our failures and have the power and courage to live a life of care, for others and for creation? How can we leave a legacy of care?
