On leave!

I am on leave from Greencroft Rehab to allow my “Joy” to take me to the College Mennonite Church and go to Rachel’s home for the noon time meal.  I’ve have learned that I do recall the techniques needed to write and send posts.

But I do not have the time I need to say everything I want to say.  I need to go back to the rehab this afternoon and then perhaps I will get to go to hear the lecture at the New Perspectives on Faith.  Tonight’s lecture will include pictures from the Hubble Telescope and pictures and information from a scientist who is helping create the successor to the Hubble.

Thanks for all of your concern for me.  I am on the mend.


About Martin Lehman

I was born 92 years ago, the son of a Mennonite pastor and organic gardener in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. At age 10 I was baptized as a member of the Marion Mennonite Church. I own the "Old Fool" moniker because I want to walk the Jesus Way even though the world and much of the church takes me as a fool for doing so. In my life I have moved from being a young conservative to an elderly radical. I tell that story in My Faith Journey posted on my website.

      The picture was taken by my camera. I have my camera and I may have a few pictures to post in the future. Life in a rehab can be interesting. I told the therapists in physical therapy that they help stretch the mind as well as the muscles of the body. I’m getting ready to leave. Think of Greencroft as being 10 times larger than Sunnyside. Suiting Goshen. – Martin

      I am so glad you commented. They tell me I should get out of rehab on Saturday, at least I signed papers that released medicare from making payments on Saturday. I have good friends that are hanging with me. One named Mary that I knew when she was a little girl. Now after long journeys we belong to the same church and she is proving to be a special neighborly friend. Life is a bit more complete now that I know you are aware and remember me. How could I have ever doubted. – Martin

    So glad you came out of that hospital. We were praying for your recovery. Be of good cheer like always!

      Thanks for your prayers. I remember your husbands last words to assure me that “Jesus is enough.” On Sunday evening I listened to a lecture by a scientist on the beginning and end of the universe. He knew what he was talking about yet he admitted to much that he did not know. He said that there was good and bad theology and good and bad science. I am sad that I can’t remember your husbands name! But I remember him well enough to know he would have enjoyed the lecture. Perhaps he could have explained more of it to me. Thanks, Dorothy. – Martin

    Life does continually bring us new challenges, and that surely brings changes in our lives. Family events since February here have brought changes in my life. I know that you and I are able eventually to adapt. Continue to take good care of yourself.

    My dear Uncle Martin, You have been on my mind a lot these last weeks since I heard of your bout with pneumonia. I am glad you are able to leave the rehab as that means there is progress and healing .
    You have always been an inspiration to me and I enjoy reading your blog.
