We light this candle to recognize Joel Naftelberg and Beth Smith. Joel has been living incredibly well in the face of Cancer for many years. His recent diagnosis is deeply challenging as Joel has heard that he has three months to live. Please offer your prayers to hold Joel and Beth and their families. In the near future there will be opportunities to extend your care in tangible manners. For now, let us hold Joel in the light of the love that he extends to all of us. They are not alone in this turning, and we are not alone in our grief.
