Pastor's Weekly Message

"Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you shining stars!" Psalm 148:3
Right now even the street lights are shrouded in the fog.  It isn't great to drive in, but it has a certain beauty and seems to enhance the silence of the night.
Just a couple of nights ago the moon was full and it lit the backyard with a silver light.  It was maybe as quiet as this particular space has been in the short ime I have been blessed to take it in.  The quiet, the silver light, even the aloneness, was beautiful.
For me proof positive that even "the moon ... all you shining stars ... praise him..".  The Creator and all of creation continues to amaze.
In thanks,
Pastor Randy
"Open our eyes fully to your world, O God.  When we hear slander, give us courage to speak truth; when we witness persecution, grant us strnegth to defend the oppressed; where we see grief, enable us to bring comfort.  Help us to se not only what is, but also what could be.  Amen."
