Life's Choices

The Road Not Taken
… I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
– Robert Frost

Dear Parishioners,

Perhaps you have heard the quote, “Our lives are the sum of the choices we make.” So here is the thing about choices. Our lives turn on all of them, even the little, seemingly insignificant ones. Our choices, once made, cannot be unmade. We have to own them, take responsibility for them, perhaps even ask forgiveness for them. They are irrevocable.

But the good news is, even when we make the wrong choice, we can still make the next choice. We get to do something powerful and redemptive… make the next choice the right one. Choose this day to choose well and wise. As Robert Frost’s poem puts it, “that will make all the difference.”

honour him, or we shall be asked why.”
