Pastor's Weekly Message

".... and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky."   Genesis 1:20

Okay this isn't so much about big flocks of geese and ducks that sometimes dominate the sky, or the osprey and vultures that float seemingly effortlessly high above and slowly drift from sight.

This is about the birds that flit about, moving in short bursts.  Thinking of the mottled robin that is back again, and several compatriots as well.  Always getting a kick out of the way they turn their heads, as if listening intently, before snatching a worm from the earth.  The sometimes frenetic behavior of the finches, some a bright yellow, chasing each other from a feeding perch, from a spot on the bird bath, as if to say, "I don't really want it, but you can't have it."  The show goes on and on.  

Thanks for the gift Lord.

Still in praise of the Creator,
Pastor Randy

"Holy Spirit, we live with noise, distraction, clatter and constant commotion.  Help us to remove all that to hear only you.  We need you to lead us on a path to clarity, hope and life.  Help us to clear our minds and open our hearts until all that we hear is you.  Guide us.  Amen."
