Riding to Honor Jesus
of the 4 silent rides ive attended, i rode the first 2 and drove the last 2, having missed 1 in the middle. it has rained 4 out of 5 years, including the ride last saturday. despite this years weather, they had around 70 riders this year, including 1 riding and 1 roller-blading photographer,several children in tow, plus 1 dog named sherpa running alongside his master.
3 shooters: driveby jim rode, malia on blades, and me… in my dry, warm car, watching the rain hit my windshield as i waited for the faithful riders to approach. between the 3 of us, we shot over 1500 pics. this may seem like a lot of pics, but since this ride is in honor of what Christ has done for us, i think its fine. that averages out to 500 snaps per shooter (i did the math in my head).
pastor ricky and his son elisha shared the devotional this year. taking some of the time to allow elisha to share his heart for the lost all around him at school, and what he is doing to fulfill God’s Great Comission to go into all the world and share Christ.
as we all take time to reflect what this time of year is all about, and what Christ has to offer all of us, little 9 year old elisha page is an example of what God can do with someone with child-like faith and a genuine desire to share the love of Christ with those who dont know Him yet.
Christ offers real hope and peace for those earnestly seeking Him, and a chance to make a real impact on the world around us. Praise God for His gift of eternal life and His life transforming love.
