Just Life

The Time is Now.

Yet who knows whether you have come into the kingdom for such a time as this? ~Esther 4:14b (NKJV)

I had the privilege of participating in my community’s MLK Service and Unity Walk today.

There wasn’t an empty seat in the sanctuary at St James for the Service, which was moving, inclusive and inspiring. truly. Three weeks into my year of Hope, this was a most welcome signpost.

The Unity Walk was another. We left St James’ sanctuary and walked to City Hall. I had the opportunity to talk with several folks (the walk is a little over a mile) and we all agreed that it was cold, that Alpharetta was a good place to live and that this event was one we were glad to take part in.

The book of Esther has always struck me as an anomaly – I wonder where God is … but today, I didn’t wonder. He was there.
