The Brotherhood – Part 176

The Brotherhood of the Second Cross was established on Father’s Day 2005 where 160 men stood before their wives and children to pledge themselves to purity, self-sacrifice, loyalty, and excellence. Today, hundreds more have joined the commitment.

Change is a radical teacher. She upsets what is and brings what you haven’t known before. She pushes you to new experiences, new ideas, and new responsibilities. While some say she must be managed, truth is, there’s very little that’s manageable about her.

Change frightens many. She seems so uncertain, so unusual, so completely different than any other we’ve known before. Many know they must face her, but few are willing to run in her direction. Her impact is life-altering in ways we didn’t expect.

But ultimately we say that Change is good. We applaud the new life she brings, the new opportunities, the sense of freshness that follows her in most of the places she visits. There are times where she leaves brokenness and conflict in her wake, but those are places where folks didn’t embrace her arrival. For others, the touch of her journey opens new horizons and gets them back on a path they’ve needed to be walking.

When Change knocks on your door, don’t fear her. Look at the doors she may open. Consider them carefully an without unnecessary criticism. She may be showing you a path to a greater future. Look closely ’cause Change may be inviting you to the future you’re really made for.
