This Sunday we lift up our graduates and celebrate with them this important milestone in their lives. As I think back to my own graduation, I don’t remember a whole lot. What I do remember is being thrilled to start a new chapter in my life. The possibilities seemed endless, and the future was before me.
Let us gather this Sunday and celebrate the endless possibilities that are before Mia, Ciera, Ella, Amelia, and Shani. Let us celebrate the gifts God has blessed them with that will bring love and compassion and hope to this world. And let us remind them that even when life is hard (and it will be!), there is a community here that is ready to welcome them.
Congratulations Mia, Ciera, Ella, Amelia, and Shani! We are proud of the people you are becoming, and we cannot wait to see what the future holds.
May you always know God’s love and grace for you,
