    Thanks be to God for the glory and majesty of this service. The TRANSFIGURATION has been transposed in many colors and dimensions for this 81 year old.This Feat Day has enriched and challenged my spirit through the years.

    I real August 6th 1988 at the Lambeth Conference at the University ofCanterbury. The 300+ of the Bishops from around the world gathered around an inner circle where our Bishop Browning and the Archbishop of Japan planted a tree for peace remembering the H Bomb dropped on August 6, 1945 on Hiroshima.With your splendid service we continue to pray for peace,

    Thanks be to God for you care and compassion through your minvitry..

    Peace,

    +William A. Jones, Bishop ofMissouri 1975 -1993
