Louise Brooks, RIP
I just received a note from someone on the other side of our battle lines, informing me that Louise Brooks, the longtime partner of The Rev. Susan Russell, has died.
As Stand Firm veterans know, Susan and I have clashed innumerable times across the blogs, and even had a little face-to-face dust-up in Columbus, Ohio at the 2006 General Convention that I caught on video. We saw each other again in Anaheim in 2009 after a long day of conventioneering, and sat on a bench outside one of the big halls and had a much more friendly chat. It was quite the interesting moment.
Susan has lost someone very special to her, but despite our differences - and they are many and they are deep - I’d like everyone to take a moment and say a prayer for Louise’s soul. Say one for Susan, too, that she and everyone who loved Louise will be strengthened in this time of grief.
O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of your servant Louise, and grant her an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship of your saints; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
