Summer is near at hand. The weather has finally begun to warm up. The leaves are out. The animals are busy. Students are graduating (we have at least three graduates this spring—Michael Kolakowski is graduating from Troy High School; Brett Cornwall graduated from Rochester College; Bethany Moekler received her master’s degree from Oakland University). Congratulations go to all three. Graduations mark points of transition. They’re a time of great joy, but also present a bit of uncertainty. Even if one knows what comes next, there is still a sense of mixed feelings involved. The future is always unclear to us, but as followers of Jesus we know this one thing—we do not go into thefuture alone.
