I write to share with you a message from Blair and Cyndy Monie. Blair is our Zbinden Distinguished Professor of Pastoral Ministry and Leadership, and a deeply beloved member of our community. He and Cyndy are communicating to us the news of his recent diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. He will be under the care of outstanding doctors and other medical professionals in Dallas, and will very soon undergo treatments and be in recovery in Dallas across the Fall semester. I ask your prayers for God's healing mercies for Blair, for God's daily watch over Cyndy and their family, and for God's wisdom and courage for Blair's attending physicians across these days and weeks ahead. I also commend to you the resources of his CaringBridge site through which we can all stay current regarding Blair's treatment and progress.
May God be to Blair and Cyndy a strong tower of defense, a comforter in tribulation, a deliverer in distress, and a very present help in trouble.
