Blessing of the Keys
Blessing of the Keys

 

On Sunday, October 7, 2018, Taylor Wentzel, Hannah Haussmann and Sadie Wentzel came before the congregation after having successfully completed the driver's exam, and asked for our prayers in the milestone we call Blessing of the Young Driver and Car Keys. At the 8:00 AM service, a keychain that bears Luther's seal was given to the young ladies as a reminder that the gifts God continues to grant us day after day in every place we travel must be exercised with responsibility to God and all of the people around us.

 They brought with them one of the things that they used as a younger youth, an object that they passed on to another. There is sadness in leaving the safety of childhood, and also the excitement of new challenges ahead. The keys that some see only as a sign of their independence, we acknowledge as signs of our interdependence and responsibility - signs of approaching maturity.
