Dedicating You Too Love and Wholeness



Sweet Alice,
Next Sunday your mother and daddy are presenting you to your church community in an act of dedicating you to all that God would have you to be.
Along with your Mother and Daddy, that community will be a part of your life, pointing you to those things that matter.


Alice, grampa will also be someone in your life who, with the grace of that mystery we call God, wants to point you to "those things that matter".
Everything I point you to will not necessarily be the right thing. Sometimes I will point you to an opinion instead of a fact.
That's when you have to investigate on your own.


This dedication is part of the beginning of your spiritual journey.
 When you are able to think and reflect on these things which have been presented to you through your parents, your church community and through grampa...


BE SURE TO INVESTIGATE ON YOUR OWN.
WHATEVER YOUR FAITH BECOMES AS YOU MATURE,
IT MUST BE YOUR FAITH.
NOT MOTHER'S , NOT DADDY'S, NOT GRAMPA'S, NOT EVEN YOUR CHURCH.
YOU MUST COME TO KNOW AND BELIEVE WITHIN YOURSELF.
So next Sunday we all acknowledge that there is something bigger than you, bigger than mother, bigger than daddy, bigger than grampa, bigger than church.


And we hope to be a part of helping you to realize that.


I love you Alice. And that is a good place for all of us to begin.


Bows,
Grampa
