This weekend I have seen the connection of the ancient with today. From the wedding of Harry and Meghan to Pentecost Sunday. From the traditional liturgy of a wedding to the service of worship in a parish I have felt God’s presence throughout. In a world starving for something real, substantial and time tested. The eternal is what many strive for and going back can get them to the future. There is something about finding divinity in ancient practices.
Finding joy in chaos is vital.
Prince Harry marries Meghan Markle today at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. I woke up at 4 AM Eastern Time today to watch the service because I am such a Anglophile and a big fan of current events like this. Today is a day of joining two people who are doing great things for others.
Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will conduct the service but the Most Rev. Michael Curry who is presiding bishop of the Episcopal church of which I am a member of will be delivering a sermon so I am excited about that.
The Royal Family along with people from charity, celebrity, sport and the community are gathered together to celebrate this joyous day. This is a happy occasion, love rules and wins.
It’s never too late for success.
College/University and High School students are donning caps and gowns to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and degrees. The walk is symbolic as it means going from one stage of life to another. For many, it means going on to the next level of education. Others will walk into searching for a career they have worked very hard for in the classroom.
This rite of passage is the cumulation of a lot of time spent preparing for the future. There is a struggle for many in the next phase but its all worth it when they find something they are called to do.
Class of 2018 may you find your way on the path before you. Congratulations to you all. Hang in there, you got this!
Hey it’s the middle of the week, we are almost to the weekend. We got this…we hope!
