OLD question: “Why did the chicken cross the road?” (In this case, the bridge!) There is but one answer to this question, and that is: To get to the other side! In this life, we will cross many bridges!! The type of bridge will determine the NATURE of what is ON the other side! There are bridges of anger, fear or resentment. They lead to entrapment, discontent, physical ills and worse! There is a better way!! There are also bridges of forgiveness, understanding and compassion all of which lead to FREEDOM, GROWTH AND PEACE! We are invited, this last Sunday of 2020, during our Burning Bowl Ceremony, to leave all this year’s challenges behind; to take with us only those lessons we learned from them. God uses everything for good. Let us be open to that good that we might see it! Happy New Year, one and all!
