This time of year brings many changes. Graduation signals the end of one journey and the beginning of new journeys. This is true for individuals as well as for congregations. The Lenten journey has ended and the Easter journey has begun. It is time for us to live out the Easter promise with the Pentecost power. As summer approaches we each have new opportunities to reach out to the people around us with God’s love.
What are your plans? Travel? Take Jesus with you! Sports? Let Jesus suit up with you! Gardening? Let God’s blessings flow through your garden to those in need. You see, no matter what your plans, God WILL be with you, so act like it! When you travel, let others see God in how you deal with each complication (you know that there will be some.) When you play sports, let others see God in how you handle both victories and defeats. When you garden, let others enjoy the added blessings that God provides for you.
No matter where you journey takes you this summer, go with God and your journey will be better no matter what your destination may be!
