Donald Grayston, priest, teacher, contemplative-in-action, was a member of the Holy Trinity Community back in the 1970s. Don died in “retirement” in Vancouver in October after a long career as parish priest, professor, peace activist and promoter of the writings of Thomas Merton. He was a devoted friend to many, always exuding, and spreading, a wonderful joy. His blog is filled with spiritual and political wisdom.
For many years he kept where he could see it first thing every morning during his “prayer time”, a brilliant, luminous, colour-filled painting called the Holy Man. I have sketched him on my iPad in the Holy Man’s space and coat of many colors, bathing in and radiating the brilliance of eternal light and love.
