Welcome aboard Flight 2021.
On behalf of our Captain
and the entire crew of New Creation Airlines,
I'd like to invite you to sit back and enjoy
the adventure that awaits.
We are anticipating an on-time departure and a smooth ride.
In preparation for takeoff,
please make sure that your seatbelt is fastened
and that your expectations for the coming year
are in their upright and locked position.

You are invited to stow any baggage
you've carried on-board at this time.
This is your opportunity to let go of
whatever fears, distractions or attitudes
that would keep you from making the most
of this unforgettable journey.

The face coverings you were issued prior to boarding
are more than a souvenir of our trip.
They should be worn at all times
during the duration of the flight.
They are a somber reminder
of our vulnerability as passengers on this journey
we call Life.

Kindly turn off all devices that
would prove distractive
or interfere with the Captain's ability
to communicate with you.
Please make sure your communication systems
are in their prayer plane mode.

Due to COVID restrictions,
food and beverage service will be limited.
But as your travel documents advised prior to boarding,
you are encouraged to drink freely
from the Living Water
and nourish your souls
with the Bread of Life.

Those of you seated near the window
are invited to look out and enjoy
the beauty of God's creation.
From our cruising altitude
you likely will be able to take note
of the distance we've traveled
and celebrate how far we've come.

Once in flight
you will be able to move about the cabin
and make full use of all that
Flight 2021 has to offer.
But while you are seated,
we ask that you please
keep your seatbelt fastened.
Unexpected turbulence
can occur at any time
and without any notice.

Please feel free to utilize
the printed matter
in the seat pocket in front of you.
The Bible offers both safety instructions
in the event of an emergency
as well as informative reading
that celebrates the faith and achievements
of others who have traveled this itinerary before you.

And don't hesitate
to press the call button at any time.
Your wellbeing
is our Captain's primary concern.
Your comments and suggestions
are always welcome.

What was it the Lord told the Children of Israel
when their flight home was detoured and delayed in Babylon?

"I know the plans I have for you.
They are plans for good and not for evil,
to give you a future and a hope
." Jeremiah 29:11
