A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY – On November 7, 1965, a drag racer from Ohio named Art Arfons sets the land-speed record—an average 576.553 miles per hour—at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats. (Record speeds are the average of two runs, one out and one back, across a measured mile.) Arfons drove a jet-powered machine, known as the Green Monster, which he’d built himself out of surplus parts.

PRAYER – A DOMINICAN BLESSING FOR YOU –   May the Arm of God bring you blessing as God lifts you into awareness, touches the place of compassion in you, and nudges you into your sense of call. As you live your life may you know the embrace of God who loves you unconditionally and will never let you go. As you companion others in their lives may they know in you the loving embrace of God. May the loving Arm of God bring you blessing. –Maxine Shonk, OP
