THE JOURNEY I COULD NOT MAKE

Aug 4th, 2013 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

The invitation came offering me the wonderful occasion to be a part of a congregation celebrating its 100th anniversary. Allowing for appropriate evaluation of my health conditions, it was concluded that making the trip and participating in the event could not happen this time. Of course, that means it would not ever be a possibility ever again.

The invitation came from a young man whose parents I had known well now almost fifty years ago and over a period of almost two decades. The church, an African American congregation in Omaha, Nebraska, had been my spiritual home while living in that city. It nurtured me, was the scene of our son’s baptism, encouraged my forays into the issues of mid 60′s and for another twenty years.
