Rooted in Faith
By Heidi Baumgartner, Washington Conference communication director
When I walked into church on Sabbath morning, two of my nieces were singing “10,000 Reasons.” This was particularly fitting: Four generations of my family worshiped together last Sabbath in the same congregation where we have five generations of history.
For 121 years, my family watched the sun come up in our Central California valley. With the passing of generations, we saw new days dawning, saying good-byes and hellos, sometimes not knowing what may pass or what lies before us. And yet, God gives us resilience to keep singing, to keep praising, to keep claiming God’s promises and blessings.
This is the legacy I want to pass on: to be rooted in faith and to nurture the faith of the next generation.
