For 27 years, Fred “Lightning Heart” Haberlein began every Mountain Fair with a blessing. Though he found a true place in front of that microphone every year, it was not a bully pulpit. It was a place for him to serve our community by gently reminding us of quiet and eternal truths. His words were clear and his intent was positive, just as the Mountain Fair itself is. Sadly, Fred passed away in the spring of 2018. Please enjoy these Lightning Heart blessings from four different Mountain Fairs past.
