Why SSJE: Merrill Carrington

Merrill CarringtonSometimes goodness and love come to us not because of who we are, or because we deserve it, but just because the love is there. When that happens, it can be very transforming. This is the kind of love I experience at the Monastery and Emery House. The intention with which the Brothers perform the liturgy, tend their website, care for the Monastery and Emery House, plan and share their meals — the only way I can describe this is as love.
