And just like that, I was sitting in the front row.  And I wasn’t sure how I felt about that.
Last Friday, I participated in the ordination service at Beulah Camp for our newly ordained ministers. It was special in that two of the ministers being ordained had spent their teen years as a part of Cornerstone.

We have very few traditions, and ceremonies in the Atlantic District, one of those is our ordination service.  All our ordained ministers enter the Beulah Camp tabernacle, dressed in dark suits and dresses, being led in by a piper. It’s pretty cool.  

The line goes according to the year ordained. The longer you’ve been ordained, the closer you are to the front of the line, and then we all sit on the platform for the ceremony.  And there I was, in the front row, with the old guys.  How did that happen?  It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was sitting in the back row with the young guys.

The book of James tells us that our lives are like the morning mist, here one minute and then gone.  I was reminded of that truth the other day when I was sitting in the front row.

Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
