We were talking about Christian history in my Confirmation class on Sunday night.
I set up this worship space for our end-of-night worship.
The mirrors represent the Christian journey that has been taken for the past 2,000 years. With all history, it is important to reflect on the past and learn from it (good AND bad).

I was looking at the baptismal bowl when I put it away on Sunday (we had a baptism so I already had it out for worship) – it was gifted to the church in the 1800s.
I loved how the organ pipes were reflected in the mirror.
I also loved the mirrors reflected on the ceiling! Another neat way to “reflect” on the journey.
As Jesus passed along the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the sea – for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fish for people.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him.
Part of the Christian journey is realizing that we are part of the history that is still unfolding.
Thanks be to God!
