Dear Fellow Parishioners,
Eleven young people from our parish will be confirmed Saturday. At our Rite of Sending Mass, I likened life to a bike ride-a tandem bike ride. Who will be riding in the front seat of your tandem bike? You or God?
When we are in front, we may feel more control. Life may be more predictable, but boring.
When God is in front, he makes life exciting. He knows delightful long cuts, He takes us through rocky places and at breakneck speeds. He just asks us to pedal.
He also takes us to people with gifts we need. He encourages us to accept those gifts and then give them away to others on the journey.
He asks us to trust Him. He knows bike secrets, knows how to make it bend to take sharp corners, jump to clear high places filled with rocks, fly to shorten scary passages.
He wants us to pedal and enjoy the view and the cool breeze with Him, our constant companion. And when you are sure you can't do anymore, God just smiles and says, "PEDAL!"
Will you let God sit in front of your bike?
