Then there is today. We have gone through strong periods of time where "journey" language has been lost and finding the right way of thinking and arriving at certain destinations have taken over. Whether those destinations are praying Jesus into your heart, baptism, or being a radical servant when we think we have arrived, we are on dangerous ground. Life with Christ is a journey. Sometimes we are on the right path and sometimes we lose our way. The key is finding that path with Christ and walking on it together.
If we take this journey alone we are sure to get weary, lose our way, or just give up. We need one another to continue on the journey. Together we can challenge one another, dream new visions, and spur on one another. I'm excited by the journey we are all on. Now how do we take this journey together with so many differences and preferences. Next time let's talk about what it means to be gathered together to share the journey.
