As we enter into the summer months, it’s a natural thing to begin planning for family gatherings and reunions. It’s the time where everyone that you aren’t always in daily contact with throughout the year can get together and catch up, celebrate over the growth and changes in the family unit. Aunts and uncles, mom and dad, niece’s and nephews, and a hosts of cousins are all clamoring for a chance to see the new additions and the seasoned. It can be quite a joyous occasion depending on the family you’re from.
Every Sunday to me is often a sort of family reunion. When I go to my local church, it is for me a chance for all my family in the Kingdom to come together and share stories and experiences of what has occurred throughout the week. And though I may not personally know each and every person in the place, I know we are family, simply because I know with a certainty that we each have the same Father and one special brother.
My family is as diverse as a kaleidoscope, all hailing from many locales. We may not all have the same language or upbringing, but we are family simply because of our bloodline and inheritance. We don’t always see the same things the same way or agree on every things at all times, and we even know that there are dark moments in our family history. However, every Sunday is an opportunity for us to celebrate the triumph’s and growths that have occurred within our family unit, always remembering the price that our dear brother paid for our freedom, and thanking our Father that he loved us enough to do what was necessary to make sure that we would always be able to come home and have reunions.
