Pastor's Weekly Message

"And God said,' and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky. .... So God created ... every winged bird of every kind.  And God saw that it was good."  Genesis 1:20-21
 
Stepping outside again the other night and hearing the great horned owls talking to each other.  Something so mysterious and hauntingly beautiful about their conversation.  And the very next morning stepping out to the same spot, before hopping into the car, and the place was filled with conversation, so much more than on those very cold mornings of late.  Teeming with life and the promise of spring, even if it was a January morning.
 
Have seen some pretty impressive flocks of geese overhead too.  While walking in the park, or looking out my office window (what a great view this continues to be by the way), and lately there has been a pretty sizable group of geese landing in the park here by the church.  They are noisy and can make quite a mess, but they are also something to behold.  Even noticing are young KOK students taking in their presence too. (Wondering if we could count them in worship attendance, their being a flock and all?)
 
Point being?  (If there needs to be one.)  There is life all around us.  It is good to take it in for even a moment.  And creation continues, the work of God is in our midst, telling me that God is not done with us yet.  So what do we do next?
 
In praise of the Creator,
Pastor Randy
 
"May the strength of God pilot us; may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us; may the word of God direct us.  Be always ours this day and forevermore."   St. Patrick
