This was the Sunday when we recognize our graduating high school seniors. Here Mary and I are pictured with the 4 young men who are graduating high school at the reception in their honor after the service. I was a bit dismayed to find myself looking up to these guys. I remember them when they were just starting Junior High. They were my first confirmation class at St. John's. Now they are graduating high school. Wow. Time flies.
It was a bittersweet day as we congratulated our graduating seniors and sent them forth into the world to prepare for greater service in the world.
Your sending and sent friend in faith,
