The journey continues.
Already, we’ve hit some bumps.
Already, there are unexpected curves.
Think back to past trips completed.
We had some tough times, kept going, and found hope in Christ’s teachings.
Sometimes we had no idea what to do next yet we trusted God’s luring Spirit.
And sometimes we fell away. Sometimes we even denied the path before us.
Again we are on a path we’ve never journeyed. There are rocks, ditches, and surprises.
Like Peter we are angry, afraid, and unsure. Like Peter we grieve what is not to be.
Like Peter, God filled us with the WAS and shows us the path to the WILL-BE.
Take a deep breath, close your eyes.
Do you not perceive it?
[moment of silence]
The Spirit is with us in the NOW.
She dances before us luring us to the WILL-BE.
Rooted in the Spirit, we are open to new paths.
Our pilgrimage continues.
