Seasons and passages

For everything there is a season,
      a time for every activity under heaven. Ecc. 3:1

We gather as friends, families, and communities to mark life’s transitions with ceremonies like graduations, weddings, baptisms, anniversaries, and funerals. When those we love experience important passages in their lives, whether happy or sad, it’s important for them to know that they have a support system in place to face whatever is next. There is no season of life that is meant to be faced alone.

Lord, show me how and when to be there when I’m needed.
