This past Sunday as we worshiped together, I was blown away by the beauty of what God is doing at The Table. It was one of those eye opening moments for me where God widens my perspective to more fully be aware of God’s work in our midst.
As I looked out at you all, my heart welled up with gratitude. So many faces and so many individual, unique stories. Tears were shed and joy was shared as Gina told about her grandson’s miraculous first steps. Gratitude and continued vigilant prayers were offered for Harper and the rest of the Booram family. Seekers and searchers from all sorts of different histories and backgrounds stood side by side as we sang, listened, and made Eucharist together.
Laura shared something at the beginning of her sermon that stuck with me all week. She said “We all get a little lost along the way sometimes.” She was sharing it as an encouragement to anyone who wouldn’t be able to follow her Harry Potter references, but I received it as such rich good news.
As I looked around the chapel right before the benediction, I felt swept up in the sacredness of being able to journey with you all. Even in the midst of getting a little lost along the way, I knew that we were safe together in that moment — held together in the love of God.
Church, what God is doing at The Table is so much bigger than any one of us by ourselves and it’s beyond anything we could conjure up on our own. I am so grateful to know you and to walk alongside you.
May the Eternal One, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, hold us together in love so that we may weep, work, and walk together!
