Flying Into the Sun

I was sitting next to a little old lady on a flight to Europe. She was very nervous. I said, "Is this your first flight?"

She said, "No, I'm always nervous when I fly. But it won't be bad this trip."

I said, "Why?"

She said, "We're flying toward the morning. We're flying toward the dawn."

That's the thing to hold onto, sisters and brothers. As the disciples of Jesus Christ, we're flying into the sun, always and forever into the sun.
