And with this Sacrament comes an epistle reading that tells us of one of our most important challenges in or lives: growing up and becoming adults! It is true spiritualy as well as in the mundane world. Look at all the rules which were forced upon us when we were children, and how free and unfettered the grown-ups seemed to be.
But, do you know what? Most of us who have reached adulthood may agree that not as many people are screaming rules at us, but that’s mostly because the rules of times past have done their job. And so it can and should be spiritually.
