Standing Still

The day has finally arrived!  Israel has a new king.  He’s been announced and proclaimed not one, not two, but three different ways and times.  As he steps onto his throne, his predecessor Samuel steps down from leadership.  In these moments of transition, Samuel shares some final thoughts with the nation and calls them to stand still for a few moments.  Even all these years later, Samuel’s call to stand still echos in our hearts as well.
