Thursday, January 31 was Chapel Services Day at Holy Cross. There were three services held in the cafeteria for the various age-grouped students. The services included song, prayers, birthday (and other thanksgivings) and a story. Today, I told the students the story of The Road to Emmaus and how meeting a stranger may, in-fact, be Jesus. I also described how Jesus, a stranger to Cleopas and the other man, heard the men's sorrows and pain, yet continued to walk with them, eat with them, and reveal himself to them as the risen Lord. We never know if the stranger we meet may be Jesus, so we are treat the stranger with respect; he may be our Lord!
Bob and I were officials in the Holy Cross Spelling Bee today. I kept the timer and Bob recorded the scores while three selected students competed in rounds of spelling contests until a winner and a runner-up were chosen to compete in the coveted San Pedro Spelling Contests. The school enjoyed the special event and concluded with the singing of the school song!
In Grace & Peace, Dan+
