New chapters open all around us, all the time. Sometimes we know that they’re coming and when they’re coming, and we can plan ahead for them. We stash a little away for birthday presents or for next year’s vacation. Parents save up for their kids’ educations.
But then there are those things we know are coming eventually (like becoming the older generation) but we don’t know when. We all need to plan for those new chapters, too–which will open, whether we’re ready or not.
How do we get ready for chapters that will open sometime but we don’t know when? I’m going to think some more about updating all those essential plans and papers that no one likes to think about. It’ll be a kindness to the younger generation. How will you prepare for a new chapter?
This message is an excerpt of a Women of the ELCA blog by Audrey Riley. Today we remember John Wesley, who died in 1791; and Charles Wesley, who died in 1788; renewers of the church.
