Most of us can appreciate that there are mysteries in life beyond our ken. This truth was reflected in a statement by the late Dag Hammarskjold, formerly Secretary-General of the UN. As his book “Markings” shows he was a faithful Christian. Hammarskjold observed; “Sometimes we choose the way and sometimes the way chooses us.” This may be more of a ‘both-and’, rather than an either-or, reality. When we choose to follow the way of our Lord, that way then shapes us. The gospel for this Sunday invites us to contemplate such matters. Do join your church family for worship and, afterward, share in a time of fellowship.
The adult class, under the tutelage of Russ MacLeod will meet, also. Come in and be warmed; ‘Baby it’s cold outside!’
