OUR TOP STORY
Blessings of Gratitude
In summer it seems, we are invited to linger in the gardens God puts in front of us. With gratitude we can accept the cool pause of early morning and long summer twilight as the sun goes down behind the hills. Prayer comes to our lips in psalms of praise and momentarily we our connected to all of creation seeing into the power of God’s love for the whole world. Darkness comes and fills the air with sounds of life we cannot see but know is there. The invitation is to pause, take a moment, and walk backwards if we cannot slow down.
This summer, I invite you to enjoy the blessings of creation and the invitation to listen with your heart and soul and mind. Observe the gardens, look at the trees, praise the butterfly, and smile with the laughter of a child or a grandparent. Gratitude changes us and changes our sinful and broken world. Pray for our youth who have been on mission and for our youth who will go on mission at the end of the month. Pray for all who work for justice and peace for the earth and all God’s people. Pray for us all as we seek to share the power of Christ’s love in the world.
