"Follow the leader"
ahead to what he might share with the children on this day,
resident storyteller Ed Lewis writes: I'd like to share about
"the guidance (parents, teachers, special adults) in the
children's life that God has placed there. I'll speak about a
cycling class I took in college and how we learned that if we are
cycling as a group, the person in the front signals to the rest
any dangers in the road. Like this, God gave us parents who have
traveled the road ahead of us (i.e. the children) and they tell us
of the dangers on the road. Although, parents don't always have
time to explain (like the lead cyclist) we trust and take their
advice so we don't take a tumble."
you have given us
grace at this time with one accord
to make our common supplications to you,
and you have
promised through your well-beloved Son
that when two or three are gathered together
you will hear their requests.
Fulfill now our desires and petitions,
as may be best for us,
granting us in
knowledge of your truth,
and in the age to
through Jesus Christ, our Lord. AMEN

leader." In the 12th chapter of the book of Hebrews,
we find the following encouragement: "since we are
surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off
everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and
let us run (cycle?) with perseverance the race marked out for
us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith,
who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its
shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God "
(vs.1-2). No matter where we find ourselves in
the "cycle race" of life, at the head of the pack is
Jesus. Remember that.
