Dear OSLC Community,

Wendy and I would like to thank the members of OSLC for choosing us as the recipients of this year’s Micah award. We also are grateful to of all of you, who on a daily basis are Micah heroes, quietly carrying out acts of justice and walking humbly with your God.

When Wendy and I arrived in the Upper Valley in 1979 we were mostly concerned about my career and our young family. Fortunately we found a church home at Our Savior.

It was there that we met a saintly woman, Sophia Assur.  She loved the Hebrew Scriptures and Micah was her favorite Prophet. She would lead bible studies and really made us understand the importance of working for social justice. She was constantly challenging us on matters of homelessness; food insecurity both at home and abroad; mental illness; income inequality; health care; outreach to refugees; etc.

How we develop as individuals is not only genetic, but also environmental.

Becoming empathetic and compassionate are learned traits starting with our parents, but we also are the summation of the individuals we are exposed to throughout our life. Hopefully we all will mirror those individuals who are caring and loving, seeing our God work within them.

Sophia is no longer with us; she is a Saint in heaven. Wendy and I would like to accept this award on her behalf. I don’t think we would have engaged with so many wonderful organizations in the Upper Valley that work to help those who are disadvantaged if it wasn’t for her.

Thank you all for all the work you do, please take heart and continue doing God’s work.
