Congratulations Grads! This too won't satisfy...

Dear Mosaic Boston Family,

We're on the tail end of graduations and commencements, so this is the perfect time to be reminded of some bitter Ecclesiastes truth: It's all vanity! Sorry, not sorry. 

I've done the whole graduation ceremony a few times now, and every time, I've been blind-sided by the overwhelming melancholy. Graduation is supposed to be full of joy and the deep satisfaction of accomplishment. I've made it. I did it. It's done. All that toil was supposed to be rewarded with sheer ecstasy, but instead, there's this gnawing emptiness. What's up with that? Thousands are celebrating graduations in Boston, and I wonder how many allow themselves to be honest about the unwelcome sadness. 

Join us tomorrow as we look at Luke 5:17-26, a story about a person who had a clear "If only I... , then I would be happy." What's your "if only"? Was it getting that degree? Getting that job? Accomplishing that goal? Did it satisfy? Maybe temporarily. But then what? Is there even such a thing as sustainable satisfaction? 

Praying for you,
Pastor Jan
