Ron Glass 1945 – 2016

Greetings Space Cadets, another sad day today as we receive news of the passing of Ron Glass, the beloved actor who played Shepherd Derrial Book in Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Serenity. Ron Glass was aged 71. I had hoped to meet him at a Comic-Con one day, in addition to Firefly he was known for his role in Barney Miller and more recently Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. One of this Serenity quotes that I have always remember and may be appropriate now is Shepherd Book’s own Prayer for the Dead and is the prayer that I have ever remembered, and I will share it for you here.

Lord, I’m walking your way.

Let me in for my feet are sore,
my clothes are ragged.

Look in my eyes, Lord, and my sins
will play out on them as on a screen.

Read them all.

Forgive what you can
And send me on my path.

I will walk on until you bid me rest.
– Shepherd Derria Book,

Zoë: Preacher, don't the Bible have some pretty specific things to say about killin'?  Book: Quite specific. It is, however, somewhat fuzzier on the subject of kneecaps.

I brought you some supper. But, if you'd *prefer* a lecture, I've a few very catchy ones prepped. Sin and hellfire. One has lepers.
