Coming and Going … Enjoy the Journey

Earlier this week,my wife arrived home from a (nearly) month-long visit to Texas.  Her dad joined us for the weekend and now he is heading home on Sunday.  However, he had good timing as he was able to help us welcome the newest addition to the family as my new grandson arrived on Friday.

A few others I know started journeys on Friday  Boy Scout Troop 179 (sponsored by Avondale UMC) is at Scout Camp at H. Roe Bartle Scout Reservation.  United Methodist clergy and lay people from around Missouri are in Springfield, MO, for the Annual Conference.  And finally, Dr. Claire Smith is leading a group of high school students on the annual youTheology Pilgrimage.

Of course, my grandson has just begun his lifelong journey and I’m happy to be one of those welcoming him and encouraging him (and his parents) along the way.

Enjoy the journey!
