Disciples, Apostles, and Saints!
What Is Our Tomorrow? We were asking this question long before hearing about COVID-19. It is another way of asking Where are we going?
I’m reminded of family car trips as a kid. My parents would often get us up on a Saturday morning telling us we’re going somewhere. The question I always asked (after where are we going?) was how long will we be in the car? What I wanted to know was how should I prepare for this trip. But I never asked that. I wanted to know how long the car ride would be because I was worried about entertaining myself. If this is a 30 minute drive, then a comic book is fine. Three hours will take a bag full of stuff.
How often are our questions not really our questions? Or even the question of the hour? How often are we just trying to figure out what I should expect?
As we continue to wrestle with our future, how might we better own our questions and obsessions? How might we engage with the moment we’re in, as a group? So that we all know where we’re going, what we can expect, and how adaptive we will need to be for the journey.
That’s what we’ll be talking about this week. If you are able to be with us in-person, join us next Wednesday, April 6 at 6:30 pm in the Cloister Room at St. Stephen’s. A recording will be made available the next day. If you can’t join us, consider how we can engage our purpose with clarity together.
