SESSION ONE

Sitting at the dinner table, not a drop of saliva formed in my mouth. In fact, each and every one of my taste buds where picketing, on strike due to poor working conditions. It was the last day of October, and there was only a handful of things on my mind. First, I was really excited to put on my homemade costume. I had spent hours gluing the fine details. I was going to be the best life-sized Cheerios box on the block, probably the only one. Second, I knew my next door neighbor was outside waiting. We all had to walk through the neighborhood together that night, the only night of the year it is socially acceptable to form hundreds of street gangs to wander in and out of people’s front yards. Third, I already had a goodie bag full of confectionary heaven at school that day, seeking to prove it is possible to live on a steady diet of fructose and glucose. My mother held a different position. Mainly, one of a large wooden spoon with capacity to both stir the split pea soup and correct a squirrelly seven year old.

I WANTED TO HAVE IT MY WAY.

As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭3:16-17‬ ‭NIV‬‬
