Mary, I'm reading this as I'm preparing to tell my congregation tomorrow that i'm leaving them for a Navy Reserve mobilization which will ultimately have me along the banks of the Euphrates. What a beautiful text to ponder in light of such a sobering announcement. Thank you for your thoughts.

I to, like the last reader, am reading this text - having informed my congregation that the Leadership has given me a year's leave of absence starting in September 2007 to do military training (I am a Canadian reserve chaplain) and then to deploy overseas to Afghanistan in early 2008 - these words speak to me as well...about the uncertainty of the future and the presence of God's love
