Yesterday was a day of transition for the Cope family. In the morning we finished getting Matt and Jenna's apartment ready. They are about ten minutes from Baylor Medical School and about twenty minutes from the school where Jenna will teach. Significantly, they are about one minute from professional football games. Since entering full-time ministry in 1982 (two months after Matt was born), I've never preached for a church where he wasn't a member. Tomorrow will be the last Sunday that's true. The flip side of that is that the guy is 22 and finally he'll get to listen to some decent preaching! We got back in time last night to take Chris to "Breakthrough," Highland's early summer retreat for middle school students. And since he just finished 5th grade last week, this is his first middle school event. So we're officially out of children's ministry at Highland. I guess you might say in light of our age (both 47), IT'S ABOUT TIME! Life is a series of transitions. "O, Thou who changest not, abide in me."
