While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about. — Angela Schwindt
In her letter to one of our school’s alumni ja01 wrote, “I think the leaving and coming of classmates has let us realize we have to move on and make friends with the new kids.” I found her words so poignant that I thought to myself, “I should blog about that.”
And then on the very same day two of my best friends–one of whom is my associate pastor and the other of whom is my worship leader–uttered the fateful words, “So, we have an announcement to make.” I immediately assumed that they were expecting. Alas, no. Their announcement was that, as of June 30, 2008, they will be leaving their positions at our church and moving back home to Kansas.
I pray that I may have the wisdom of a child in this situation.
