Given By Youth Minister Anna Runion March 31, 2019

Our Youth Minister, Anna, is contemplating the changes that will occur in her and her husband’s life as they raise their first child. In addition, what will the world be like in the unknowable forever? What will the world be like for this child? During the Lenten season, we reflect on our life, the world around us and our relationship with God.  The people in the reading today were grieving about the state of the world. They wanted things to be like it was before. Life is all about change. Worshiping God in the hopes of a magical redemption or return to the past is not what it means to follow God. God is concerned with the well-being of the whole community. Serving others in the community will lead to personal piety and devotion which leads to God.
