What do you do when you get lost? Do you ask for directions? Do you keep on going hoping you'll eventually get where you need to go?
Summertime has me reminiscing on those good ol' fashioned family road trips from my childhood. You know, back in the days before GPS navigation ensured you stayed on track. There were only a few times I recall getting lost and our trip being delayed, but I still remember the anxiety it caused. There are still stories circulating in my family of these infamous moments that begin with: "Do you remember that one time on that one trip...".
Today, most of us don't often get lost when we travel (I mean, we have more gadgets to direct us than we even know what to do with). However, I think there are moments we can feel like we've taken a wrong turn or gotten off track in our lives. Sometimes we reach a point in life where we could've swore we had it all together just yesterday, but then today it sees like things are falling apart. The good news is we're not the first people to have had this problem and we sure won't be the last.
I invite you to join HPUMC on Sunday as we look at a group of people who found themselves lost and found and then back again. We'll look at a story of rock's, Lord of the Rings, and sushi to find that not all who wander end up lost. I hope to see you on Sunday!
Grace and peace, Rev. Joy Gonzalez
