2 Kings 2:1-12
As Elijah disappears in a whirlwind, Elisha is now on his own. Our story has a prequel: One day, years earlier, Elijah passed by Elisha and threw his mantle over him. Pay attention to this mantle because it is everything to everyone ever touched or called. Let’s suppose that one Sunday morning, the prophet Elijah walks past 411 West Lake and throws his mantle over our church sign. After all, we know Elijah does time travel because he shows up on the Mount of Trans-figuration with Moses talking to Jesus about his EXODUS and en-couraging him. What could it possibly mean for us?
