It is Sunday morning June 10...not a stardate, but a day to remember. It is a turning point. A corner in time. A moment when things formally change. We have been here before but never with such potency.
The Body of Christ is a unique critter. She ebbs and flows, shifts and changes, but she always is on the move. She is made up of diverse people of faith, who are equipped to serve, growing in unity, and ready move toward a spirit of maturity. We have been here before!
There is an old song "what a difference a day makes...24 little hours." It is true, we will walk away, turn the corner (Bob Seger would say 'turn the page') and everything will be different. We will move away from one group of faithful folks into the sight of another group of faithful people. We have been here before!
Best yet, God has been there all the time! So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieu! Is that Charles Dickens or Julie Andrews...I never can remember!
