We long to walk the new road with Christ, but the people, places and
memories to which we are emotionally attached can keep us looking
back. We cling to beliefs, ideologies and worldviews taught to us by
family or handed down with authority, but that can keep us from new
ideas and discoveries. We are a part of a living Christian tradition. We
can honor our past while remaining open to the new road Christ’s
Spirit leads us along.

Living Christ, help us not get so stuck in the old ways that we fail
to see value in all that is new. Free us from past attachments so
we can follow you down the road of your future. Amen.

New Here ?
