Memorial for
Mercy Apostle Hurst (Vashti)

There will be a “peaceful and meditative” Tribute to Mercy (Vashti) gathering on July 11 @ 17412 Marine Drive, Stanwood, Washington 98292 beginning @ 11:00 am.

To those inclined to participate, take the Marysville/Tulalip exit, off of I-5, (exit 199, when coming from the South), head West for 13.5 miles through very wooded country (same road all of the way).

Take a left turn on a single lane driveway through the woods (at the above mentioned address) towards the water. Carpools are encouraged due to limited parking.

Helpful items to bring: fold up chairs, blankets for sitting, binoculars (beautiful nature site), room for some small tents, possible room for a motor home or two, any personal comfort items.

Children need to be extremely closely monitored due to the proximity of steep cliffs, high tide and the drop off into the water. Canine friends are very discouraged.

Please bring pictures and your favorite memories of our treasured friend.

A table will be provided for the placement of contributed “easy” snack foods, no dishes please, just items that can be handled without utensils, without preparation time, covered and on paper plates, non-alcoholic beverages. Thank you in advance for providing.

Please call Sensible @ 425-232-7541 for any questions.

Planned by Sensible and Felicity to honor our dear friend Mercy. Andrew knows about it and approves.

Our Grace, some people call her Jackie, her husband Mark in the cowboy hat and Henry Fiddler visit.
Red haired pixie Grace is still the beauty we all knew and loved.
From Henry the Fiddler
Here are some great photos from our visit of May 6, 2007 to the Twelve Tribes' Morning Star Ranch community near Valley Center, California, in North San Diego County, just a short drive from Jackie & Mark's home in Lakeside, Calif. The Twelve Tribes just established this community about 4 years ago, and we are just getting connected with them.

As you know, I came to San Diego this winter and reconnected with Jackie for the first time since the breakup, and met her husband Mark. Shortly after this, I met the Twelve Tribes community and visited their Morning Star Ranch during their Passover week. It was like deju vu every 5 minutes! The bus is a 1948 White with all new 1992 engine, drive train and running gear. That's a propeller on the front, and wings on the side. The couple in the middle of the bus photos are two of our many gracious hosts, Craig and Ruth from Morning Star.

We all ended up visiting on Sunday for a day long festival at their Ranch which is so much like Arlington, it was a total mind blower! We had a great day singing, dancing, playing, touring, eating and talking about our respective community experiences over the past 4 decades. They have a community with a cafe up in Nelson, B.C., near Northport. They also have about 50 communities worldwide. They even have a tall sailing ship that they acquired and rigged recently. Amazing folks. They are truly our relatives!

I was flabbergasted when I met them. With all my travels I thought it must be a dream. Then I realized Love Family was crashing in 1983 and they didn't really start taking off until 1984, from their incubator over in Chatanooga, Tennessee. Then they moved to Vermont, so they were on the opposite side of the continent. But now they are worldwide with 50 communities and a tall ship! Visiting them is really unbelieveable. It's just like winding the clock back 30 years! They are closer than a cousin ... more like an identical twin.
