As the items were placed back into the time capsule for the congregation (see Day #838), I gave thanks for the history, the lives, the faith of the saints who have gathered in this place for many decades. And I couldn’t help but dream and wonder about who would be here in the next 25 years: the changes that would happen, the lives that would be touched by God, strengthened by the Holy Spirit, and reassured by the grace of Jesus Christ and his love. I pray with thanksgiving for the past and hope for the future, trusting all into God’s hands.
PS It was also fun to talk with the confirmation youth about the time capsule and see their enthusiasm for maybe making a time capsule of their own. Great idea!!
