Two Big Things Happening On The Same Day

So here’s a powerful confluence of events. The 8th grade Confirmation class leaves for its spring retreat tonight, the evening of the very day on which many of them will receive letters from the selective admission high schools to which they applied (it’s a Chicago thing).

So at the same time that my students will be relishing acceptance or despairing rejection from the schools of their choice, I and their leaders will be nudging them toward their own acceptance-of faith, of the church, of Jesus. 

It’s bound to be a time filled with possibility. That’s how I’m choosing to look at it.
