Telling Our Friend Rick's Story

June 23, 2017 2:10 PM | Anonymous




One of life's lessons is to tell our story, not to tell others’ stories. It’s an essential way to live. But there’s an exception to this rule, at least for me at this moment, and it has to do with our treasurer, Rick Marks. Rick was diagnosed with ALS last October, and he’s currently hiking the Appalachian Trail (along with several others from the Parish of the Epiphany). Rick is humble, and he really wants the people around him to remain positive. His story, at least as I’ve heard it, inspires my faith, and makes me want to share it with everybody I meet. Rick has created a blog about his hike. In addition to Rick’s hike, there are several others in our Parish bicycling from Boston College to New Haven, Connecticut, to raise money for ALS research; they’re doing this because of our friend Rick. There are many ways to be a Christian community, and Jesus himself never gave us a play-by-play book. What he said was, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” You can read Rick’s blog and see the photographs here:
