Summer can be a time of farewells. Kids leave their friends at school. Some even are transitioning to a new school. My mother used to tell me, “Always leave a place better than how you found it.” As you say goodbye to friends for the summer – or maybe for longer – are you leaving those relationships better than you found them? Paul, when he says goodbye to the church at Ephesus recounts his strong relationship with the people there, but trusts in God to lead him into the future.
