Am I that old?
Today I officiated at a wedding of a young man with whom I played Trash Can Basketball when he was in 6th grade. Most of the groomsmen and a number of the guests also were a part of that middle school group. Now they are grown up and launched into the world. Many of them married with children of their own. One of the gifts of being a pastor who has had the privilege of staying in one place as long as I have is being a part of these milestones. A meaningful thread which winds it way through both their life and mine.
