Are we there yet?
Anyone who has gone anywhere in a car with children for any length of time has heard this question. When children are going on a trip with anticipation, they cannot help but want to know when they have arrived.
When you stop to think about it, adults are not much different than children. When you are on a journey of any kind, it could be a physical workout or an emotional time, you want to know when your journey has finished and you have ‘arrived’.
We have had many questions this past week or so about where our Church is headed and what will happen next. It’s an understandable set of questions. Our Church has been through a long and difficult time. We all want to know that the journey is over so that we can move forward.
Unfortunately, these kind of journeys do not work that way. Yes, we have a leader who truly understands our Church and loves all of us. Yes, we have had so many positive things happen here this fall, with more on the way. But, we cannot say that we as a church have ‘arrived’, because that is an individual perspective dependent on your own spiritual journey.
It is nice to believe that there is a sign that tells us there is an ending to any kind of journey. But, unlike car trips, there is no road map and no sign telling you when you have arrived when you are on an emotional or spiritual journey. However, it is often when we finally get to our destination that the adventure truly begins.
We hope you will continue with us on this adventure!
Yours in Christ,
