Tomorrow, May is over.. and we are all glad. May is a candidate for the craziest month of the year. Every single activity that you started in September has to have a closing event – Dance Recitals, Concerts, Scouting. And then there are the sports. You can’t admit it but you’re praying your child loses in the playoffs so it will all be over. AP Exams. End of semester exams. And of course,… graduations.
I am excited that this coming Sunday, we will honor our high school graduates in our worship services. Some of them will have roles in the services. It is worth celebrating how this community has lived out our baptismal vows in the lives of these high school seniors. You have taught them in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School, you have seen them sing in choirs and grow up through YCX, you saw them declare their faith at confirmation. And now, you get to watch as they scatter across the country to their declared colleges and marvel when they come back at how God is at work in their lives. I am excited to pray for them and celebrate our students Sunday.
We will take communion together in all services as we continue in our series, On Display. This week we look to James’ words on our words. Once again, Jesus’ little brother has some important advice.  I can’t wait for Sunday!
