Thought for the Day: Some of you may remember this scripture from our Crossing Over Campaign more than five years ago. The passage describes a threshold moment for the Israelites. It is not a casual move between one place and another. It is a transition from one stage of life to another, and it almost always has implications for body, mind and spirit. I raise this today, in part, because Zach and some of our other high school youth had Prom last night, a step toward graduation. As I was flipping through Facebook, I came across 44 different threshold moments. Some were high school proms, a number of them were graduations (high school, college and graduate degrees), two of them were weddings, two were births and three were funerals. Threshold moments have been paused for the last year (not entirely, but definitely impacted), yet they are so important to who we are as human beings. They define and shape us, and so I pray for all of us to return to those needed celebrations in life. We need to honor every passage from life to greater life, or what Jesus described as the journey to the fullness of life.
Prayer: Continue to guide us into greater experiences of life, Holy God. As we transition from one stage of life to the next, may there be space for singing and celebrating, remembering and honoring, gratitude and joy. In the name of Christ we pray. Amen.
