Connect the dots. We've all done one. It's a form of puzzle that contains a sequence of numbered dots. When a line is drawn connecting the dots the outline of an object is revealed. Our life and our stories are like a dot to dot puzzle. Each dot is a circumstance, an encounter, a memory, a decision made, a value held, a moment celebrated, a failure experienced, a dream crushed. Unconnected, they are random dots. Disconnected, they make no sense. But connected with the lines of our life, they tell a story. The only problem is they are not numbered. Today the risen Jesus comes to connect the dots, to craft his story of love in our life as he reveals his purpose. That's what we'll explore and experience today.
