Psalm 19:1-4 (The Message)
1-2 God’s glory is on tour in the skies,
God-craft on exhibit across the horizon.
Madame Day holds classes every morning,
Professor Night lectures each evening.
3-4 Their words aren’t heard,
their voices aren’t recorded,
But their silence fills the earth:
unspoken truth is spoken everywhere.
The Psalmist tells us of God speaking through nature. Don’t you just
love this time of year? As I write this, the storms of yesterday are past, along with the high humidity and heat and ozone. It’s a great day to be outside, to listen to the birds and hear the lapping of the water. If we keep our ears attuned, we will hear God speaking to us.
If you were not at church this past Sunday, June 17, you will have gotten via email or mail a copy of the Wonderings Bishop Macholz shared with us at Synod Assembly. Please take the time to ponder these things. You will be hearing more about them throughout the year. Through our bishop, God has issued us a challenge to truly think outside the box when it comes to our life together as the people of God in this place.
I want to remind you that on July 29, because it is a fifth Sunday, we will have a service of prayer for healing. We all have many kinds of needs in our lives that crave God’s healing touch. Let your family of faith pray with you for healing.
May God bless you as you work and play and may you know God’s
presence in all you do.
ours in Christ’s love,
