I thank God that 87 years ago, a seed was planted that would grow to be the Church of Christ on Marsalis Avenue. As we live in the overflow of the excitement of our recent Homecoming celebration it has me thinking about the next 87 years. If the earth still stands, the year will be 2102. I will be long gone, my children will be very old, my grandchildren will be members of AARP and my great grandchildren will be in their 30s. If you are reading this article in 2015, the odds aren’t looking good for you to be around here in 2102 either. But just like those who planted a seed in 1928 that would grow to become the church we are, what we do today will impact generations yet unborn.
What is the legacy that we will leave behind? What things do we need to be doing now so that there is a 174th Homecoming?
