Today I saw a lot of interesting things like a squirrel diving in a trash can to get a cookie, interesting rock formations in Mammoth Cave, and even the (symbolic) cabin where Abe Lincoln grew up. However, most importantly I saw God through the line of people waiting to get to the other side of Mammoth Cave. It reminded me of the communion line in church. Except for the occasional “Hey, watch out!” or “It’s slippery there!” There is the one “I wish there was an elevator here.” It was a fairly calm journey into Mammoth Cave, and even heard from one tourist that the light she saw and the end of the tour made her “almost cry.” It was the same relief one would feel when their hard work finally paid off. I can definitely say it was 99% worth it with one percent being my back hurting after having to hunker down under the low ceilings. Thank you to Presbytery of Sheppards & Lapsley and our church for supporting us in this journey. Tomorrow we arrive at Purdue University to begin Presbyterian Youth Triennium 2019!
