How do you handle something new?
Tomorrow school begins in Chandler. Last Wednesday night we had our back-to-school party here, and we gave the kiddos the backpacks you provided and helped us assemble—we invited our neighbors from the Latin American church here in Chandler to celebrate with us, and got to know some new friends.
First day of school—how many of you remember that? I vividly remember my first day of high school—standing in line to buy my books, finding my locker, bad dreams that I wouldn’t remember where my classes were . . . all for nothing, because the air conditioning blew up that first day and they sent all the students home!
The first day of school, the start of something new can be exciting—it can be scary. At the very least, it can cause some anxiety.
We live in the midst of so much uncertainty—and there are so many places to look for advice! Think Face Book. Think Instagram. Think Twitter. Television. On TV there is an unbelievable amount of advertisement for those who would love to give us investment advice, a psychic hotline, on You Tube there are people to teach you how to do just about anything . . . but where do you go for advice that you know you can trust?
Today, on New Year in July, we are going to talk about the value of trust. Who can you trust?
