High School Mini-Reunions

Our class president is in town, so a bunch of us are getting together today for a high school mini-reunion. To say we've changed over the decades is an understatement. But beyond the extra pounds and thinning hair is an even greater change.

Since graduation many of us have come to faith, and God has transformed our hearts. He's given us an eternal perspective, and the things of earth have grown strangely pale by comparison. We care more about each other's souls than social status or profession, appearance or physical strength.

And it's a good thing, because many of our classmates are experiencing life-threatening illnesses. Fact is, some have already passed from this earth. As we face our mortality, there's only one pertinent question: Where will we go when this life is over?

My prayer is that our class will continue to have reunions throughout eternity--around the throne of Jesus Christ who is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
