This week, I conclude my thoughts and ideas about our growth. ‘Growing toward spiritual maturity’ is an on-going journey for all of us. Below, I share some thoughts about a powerful book that captures our collective and individual dreams, visions, and life goals. It is called “God’s Photo Album.”
GOD’S PHOTO ALBUM
In a book entitled, God’s Photo Album, by Shelly Mecum and the children and families of Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, rests an inspirational story about how they looked for God and saved their school. Ms. Mecum and her students had a dream, and the courage & faith, to make their dream soar. Determined to save the struggling Ewa Beach elementary school on Oahu, Hawaii, they mobilized an entire community to realize her vision: A spiritual quest for God and a brave book-writing adventure. Some 168 young children and their families, ranging from five to eighty years old, toted cameras, notebooks, and pencils across the island by bus, trolley, and glass-bottom boat. Their mission? To find God. Enclosed throughout the pages of this wonderful book are snapshots and inspiring observations, offering unforgettable moments of grace. Proof that no dream is too big!
