Susanna...
The BIG DAY has arrived.
On Sunday, March 19 MSNBC will air THE ETHICAL EDGE: RELATIONSHIPS at 6p and 11p et.Not exactly sure where the piece about Interfaith Relationships will air but it will be in that hour.
Thanks so much for all of your help. You really were a joy to work with and I wish you the very best in the future.
 
God Bless you,

J.H., Producer
MSNBC

Dear Susanna...

You were superb! Everyone enjoyed your talk...your humility and love come shining through...it is what I most admire about you.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...you really are a minister's minister.
 
Blessings and love,

Hi Susanna,

Thank you again so much for all your help. Your wisdom has helped me
in more ways than one.

Dear Susanna,
Today was a wonderful inspiring day for me. I am finally getting an idea of
why I am in the Seminary program and what I would like to do with it.
I think you are a very special person with a great gift. You are one in a
few who can make every single person feel truly unique and special. I can't
wait to have a good reason, to invite you to do a ceremony for me.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful gift with us today.

Dear Rev. Macomb,

Thank you for all you gave us on Saturday. It was very inspirational!
Please let me know if you are ever speaking at a Church. You must give great sermons!

Warmly,
P.K.

Dearest Susanna,

What wonderful prayers and quotations.
And I consider it a privilege and an honor to be working with you!!!
You are absolutely delightful, on top of everything else you are.
 
Much love and appreciation,

J..

I felt so free for days after you were here and did that healing on me.

You remind me of an angel/fairy, flying around, tinkering, throwing fairy dust on people… I think that's part of people's attraction to you, not only the light, the freedom of flight.

I so appreciate you, you are such a gift, such an inspiration; your ministry, your motherhood, it makes me feel like my life will be OK, too!!
 
And that's why I came to the workshop, to get out of the house, make some contacts, check out One Spirit, feel adult, and most important, enjoy an evening with you!

S..

Good Morning,

You are a dream!!! Thank you so much for everything on Saturday. The bride and groom were over the moon thrilled with everything…and you made it so special.

Speak to you soon,

Hi! It was a joy last night, pure joy. You are such a gift, to everyone. Last night when you were looking into everyone's eyes, I had this flash of Karunamayi, the compassionate mother… sweet, your energy is just like hers. You are so amazing. You don’t know how powerful you are!
 

S.

***

You are constantly surprising us, something that always cheers me up 'just-in-time'. It's almost like some of us need a dose of Susanna Macomb news/wisdom every once in a while. And hey, there's an idea: how about a blog?

B.

Dear Susanna,
I don't even know how to express in words how much I enjoyed your class and how inspiring it was for me! Thank you so much, again! I'm sorry that I had to miss the last few minutes. Please count me in when you start the Masters program. I will begin the Seminary in September and I hope we can figure out at that point how I can take both simultaneously or switch over. However we can do it, I will

I also think that you are tremendous asset to the school. We students benefit so much from your experience.
 
It was such a beautiful day, and I look forward to seeing you again. I send much love and thank you for all the beauty you put into the world... it's so necessary, especially in these times! Your love and light shines very brightly.
Very best regards,

J..

Hi Susanna,

I first of all wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the course last Sunday. I love your excitement and joy in performing ceremonies.

Guess what? I got a call from a friend saying that his daughter, who is getting married on May 6th, got a call from the minister saying that he booked two weddings on the same day by mistake and he can't do her wedding. My friend asked me to be the minister. So here goes my first wedding. I met with the couple, my friend and his ex-wife today. It was wonderful. I have my ceremony almost prepared (with a lot of help from your book). I am just waiting for the couple to e-mail me the things that they love about each other so I can incorporate it into the service. I am really excited.

Who knew your course would start me off so soon? I think your telling me I would have no trouble was a big boost to my self-confidence. And it looks as if the universe is getting behind me.

Thank you again for all your help and for your book, which I consider a bible for wedding ceremonies. I would definitely love to take my Masters with you in Ceremonies, if you decide to teach it.

Love,
R. A.

Dear Susanna,
 Just a note to thank you for your inspiration.  I think it was the first time
we actually came together as a class and your energy did it.  I must say that
I am surprised to see so much power in such a diminutive body!  It would be
great to follow you around for a while.  Now that would be an education!
 
Blessings on all your good work,

D.J.S., Tennessee

Dear Susanna,
 I felt so honored to be invited to such a beautiful and special event. I felt so comfortable speaking to you. The words spoken about you the night of the party were absolutely amazing! Susanna, you are extremely loved, respected, adored and praised by so many! Please know that your book has given me hope, strength and happiness. May the peace and blessings of Allah be bestowed upon you! May the love and light that is Jesus Christ always be with you!

I feel blessed to have met you---you have touched my spirit! I have said a prayer for you today! Thank you!

Respectfully ours,

R. S. K.

Hi Susanna,
 I missed being at your talk at All Faiths. However, I just listened to it on tape and was moved to tears by your honesty, surrender, and by your work. I, too, have had profound mystical experiences, prior to entering this training, am an artist, and healer and am about to follow my heart by starting my own classes in Jewish Meditation. I found your story to be very inspiring.......particularly, where you said that we ourselves don't know how God will use us, to surrender and to see what shows up. So.......thanks again for giving your time to our group, and I hope if I am in a panic about doing a wedding, I can call you..... I have your book, and will make much use of it I am sure.....

Blessings to you,

D. A.

Susanna,
 I captured the video of you yesterday-by far the best interview I have ever done. You are a pleasure to spend time with and talk to. So much came up for me, personally-you truly touched me and I believe I gained so much strength and insight by talking to you. You truly have THE gift :)

Thank you!

Sincerely,

M. P.

***

Susanna,
When you touched my hand,  I felt all the pain and shame of the past four years melt away.  The hand of God has truly touched your soul.
One day I hope that you will conduct my interfaith, intercultural wedding.
God bless you.
R., NY

Dear Susanna,
I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how happy I was to meet you and how grateful I am that you took the time to speak with our class. You are a bundle of LIGHT!

Thank you for your enthusiasm and loving presence. It was a joy to see you in "action". As I mentioned during lunch, I felt a closeness to you when I heard you via tape covering the class I missed in February.  I am hoping that you are able to find the time to conduct a training class for interested students.

Thanks again.
Namaskar, L.

P.S. I looked at your website - I LOVE IT!

***

Susanna,
I wanted to thank you for being such a generous speaker. I found the seminar last weekend to be inspirational.

You are truly a story teller and through story, you showed me the way.

The day was very energizing!

Again, Thank you.

M.

Dear Susanna,
 Thank you so much for your time.I am glad to know of people like you out in the world, touching others with your spirit.

I really loved your website and especially your art which must be ten times more beautiful in person. I am currently finishing grad school and study women's studies, art and literature so I was fascinated by your work.

Thanks again!
Sincerely,

K. H.

Dear Susanna,

Hello Susanna,
 I am so glad to have met you. You are an inspiration in following your vision and heart. Thank you for taking the time to educate me and share your wisdom!

Many many blessings,

Dear Susanna,
I hope you remember me, the one who was interrogated by the Sikh bride? I just wrote to her and set new boundaries regarding providing info prior to meeting me, and I said if chosen, we could create a beautiful ceremony together, possibly including Sikh rituals (tying of the scarf, circling the Guru Granth Sahib) and Christian elements. Of course, I read your book after I came home to learn about the Sikh rituals. Thanks to your class on Saturday, I have more enthusiasm, confidence and interest in learning about different cultures' wedding rituals and customs than ever before. What a gift!

I look forward to learning more and more so I can offer real service to my wedding couples with knowledge, confidence and love. You are a natural teacher and you offer ministers and ministerial students a great gift when you agree to teach us what you know in person, and I look forward to your next class. Thank you, thank you! I'll keep you posted about the Sikh-Church of England couple.

Lots of love,

Rev. L. Z.

Susanna,
Meeting you was a joy. Experiencing that you truly hold your beliefs in front of you was something I so needed to see. Your authenticity permeates the room. We are all lucky to have you.

Always with much love,

L. T.

Susanna,
It was a joy to have you with us this past Saturday - and I KNOW that the people who were there loved the day, and YOU!!!!!

It is, of course, truly inspiring!

Love and Blessings,

Dear Susanna,
I just loved being in your presence. You radiate such light. And I can’t wait for our private session, to be in your loving presence once again.

Until then.
Love,

S.

Dear Susanna,
Hello…I am an OSIS student and attended your Jan. 31 workshop in NY. (I am the one who came up from Virginia for the day). It was a wonderful day and I want to thank you again for all of the wonderful information and especially the inspiration! After that day I became completely committed to my weddings ministry because you helped me see it as not only a service to the 2 people I am marrying but as a service of bridge-building that no doubt could have a broader reach.

Thanks so much.
Warmly,

C. G.

***

Dear Susanna,
You are a divine energy, and I thank you so for Saturday’s class
You are such a good story teller and so much is given that way.
I went to your art site and I was impressed again.
God bless your spirit.
I know he already has.

With respect,

M.

***

Susanna,
J. and I would be honored to be a part of anything you do and share with the world. You are such a special individual. Let us know if you need anything from us. We have a tape from the day if that would help you. It truly was the most spiritual day of my life and most eye opening to the whole interfaith experience. You truly are my spiritual mentor.

Much Love,

L.

***

Susanna,
Meeting you felt like coming home.
Please let me know whenever you are ever speaking anywhere.

Thank you, again,

S., New York

***

Susanna,
I love that you're inspirational and real at the same time. It's a rare combo that I really treasure. We are just WAITING for you to start a church/spiritual organization. We need you!
Best,

Dear Ms. Macomb,

It was so nice to find that there is someone who experiences joy from seeing the world move closer to one community.

Dear Rev. Macomb,
I don’t know if you remember me from your seminar. I am S., the Yoruban Priest. It was such a wonderful day. I was so inspired by you, your words and your ministry. When you signed my book you wrote: “Your path will find you.”. I just wanted you to know that you were right. My path is finding me! You have given us so much. I just wish I could give something to you!
 
Love and Blessings,

S.

Hi!
It's a pleasure to be doing a show that also seems to be writing itself. I usually have to force information out of a topic or a guest in order to display the poignancy of the subject. But there's no need here. The information is only pure spirit. Thank you for being bringing your warm authenticity to our show.
 

M. S.

***

Hi Rev. Macomb,
Perhaps you will remember me. I was the "oldest guy" in the audience at Berkshire Community College when you spoke yesterday on interfaith, intercultural marriages. Just wanted to drop you a short note expressing my thanks for spreading your thoughts of hope for a better world. The long ride from my home in Otis was well worth the hour's presentation!
 
Thanks again.
Fondly,

M. S.

Dear Susanna:
Thank you for your exceptional and inspirational talk at the seminary. I so believe that God brings us many blessings. You are definitely one of them. It was wonderful to read your book and meet you the next day. I did not realize you would be our speaker.

I have already praised your book to so many people. Thank you for following the lead of the Spirit and writing it! It is a gift for my journey.

I also really enjoyed our conversation about all the extraordinary things that happen to us. It is exciting that you will be doing a book about death. This kind of affirmation is really needed at this time. Too many resources forget the spiritual arenas and focus on the medical aspects of the dying process. I see/live it everyday and it is sad.

I would be honored to share with you in any way that I can. My work at Hospice is difficult at times but it is a great gift to walk the journey with one who are ending their physical life. It is an additional blessing to serve the families and loved ones.

Thank you, again for spending the time with us. Many Blessings for following the path and accepting the challenge.
 
Peace,

V.

Hi Susanna!
I am one of the students with the All Faiths Seminary. I just wanted to say that we were so looking forward to being with you in April, and that we were disappointed when that was changed. We understand that you will be coming for our May 8th class. I had "by chance" found your site, and purchased your book, before I realized that you were to be part of our curriculum speaking on Spontaneous Synchronicity. I am speaking not only for myself, but for my lovely classmates, when I say that we are joyously anticipating your presence. Your book, and website, are so chock full of wisdom, possibilities, and amazing clarity. You have been so thorough in your research and presentation. Wow! I can hold the space, but the logistics overwhelm me. You have made it easy. Thank You.
 
Warmly,

S. G.

***

Hello Susanna,
How are your books on baby blessings and death coming along? I will be doing a Baby Blessing soon and I keep looking to see when your words will be in print... Actually, I know it will probably be some time before your next issues will be available. I do want you to know however, that I wait with baited breath.

I pray all is well with you and yours… and thank you again. Stay blessed and be well.
 
Always with love,

L.

***

Hello Rev. Susanna,
You spoke the words I so badly needed to hear. So much of what you said yesterday spoke to what is happening in my life now. I guess I can thank God’s “spontaneous synchronicity” for that, and I thank YOU!
 
With love,

H.

***

Dear Susanna,
It is clear to both of us that you are a person who has found your life's calling and that this is a blessing to the people you work with during such important life transitions. I will continue to recommend you to people who are searching for a heartfelt, very personal and spiritual ceremony.
 
Blessings on you, Susanna, and thank you for what you do with such an open heart.

M.C.

Susanna,
I had not planned on conducting wedding ceremonies.  However, you inspired it in me!
 
Good luck on your book!

Susanna,
I really enjoyed hearing and watching you speak. 
I think you are going to be famous!
God bless you and all your good work,

Dear Reverend,

I was so happy to see that holy people like you exist in this world. Your message is beautiful.

Thank you for your time,

Thanks again.

D.

Hi Susanna,

I just wanted to tell you how grateful I was that we got to do this show. The taping went great and, from what I could see, the rapport between you and A. will certainly come across to the viewers.
Thank you so much for coming all the way out to SI, and for being on the show.

Thanks again.

M.

Hello dear Susanna,

It seems like such a long time since we saw each other, I loved your workshop, lunch ... the day! I hold you close to my heart.


Much love to you and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy your writing time!

P.

***

I have to admit I was a bit cautious at first, having seen one too many self-promoting new age gurus in my time. But my sense, which I trust implicitly, is that you are completely genuine and following true guidance in service to others. All the while enjoying life and learning as you go. I admired you in your story of your journey and am trusting more in my own as a result. I was uplifted by our meeting and it is lasting. Thank you, by the way, for your example of the Native American prayer-stance of making oneself receptive…. a big hug to you,

J.

***

Hi Susanna,
Just wanted to let you know that I am still enjoying your book and the enthusiasm you brought to our class. You are an asset to our school and the ministerial calling.

Thanks again,
C. M.

***

WOW-I am impressed--and dearly hope/intend to emulate you--asap! May it rub off on me, over here, right now and for always--and Amen! You are much Beloved by God and man/woman.

S.

Shalom Susanna,
I am taking a few minutes to breathe this morning (afternoon) and appreciate some of the many blessings of this past year. One, among many, was the opportunity to spend time with you -- such a warm, energetic and kindred spirit. It is a real privilege to travel this world of the intercultural couple and family with you. I continue to read your book, gaining much from it. I am grateful that you took the time to write it.

Hope all is well with you. I hope that our paths will cross again someday. If you would ever like to collaborate on a project, let me know.

Warmest regards for a Healthy and Peaceful Year.

Dear Susanna -
It is my absolute joy to support you and your work in the world in any way I am able to - I just think you are the most incredible gift to this world!

Rev. Susanna,
Please put me on your mailing list. From the first time I met you, I had the feeling that I could learn a lot from you. You are pure electricity!
