Molly Wolf is a writer, an editor, a mother, and an Anglican living in the province of Ontario, Canada. Some years ago she had the idea that she would post weekly essays on topics that might be of interest to Internet brothers and sisters.
'Interested' is far too bland a word to describe the reaction. Week after week list members were moved and delighted by Molly's writings and learnt from her life's experiences, grateful that she chose to share them. The essays have been forwarded from friend to friend, passed on to parish magazines and newsletters, and sent round the cyber world. Their circulation has properly far outdistanced the original community of St Sam's.
Thus the Society of Archbishop Justus is pleased to host Molly Wolf's Sabbath Blessings. We hope you enjoy them.
If you'd like to receive each weekly Sabbath Blessing as a post directly to your email address, here are instructions for signing up for any of the Justus mailing lists. Or you can email Molly Wolf directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have general comments about these web pages, feel free to contact the websextons of St. Sam's.
