I was hoping for more snow today. I was hearing 18". I think we got 8. But it's better than the nothing we had. Sure didn't feel like a Sunday today without church. It really is the anchor of my week.
Here's a picture Sharon took off our back deck. Snow still falling, clouds overhead, and the sun peaking through just before sunset behind the hills to the west. Beautiful.
From one of this coming Sunday's readings:
"The heavens are telling the glory of God;
and the firmament proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours forth speech,
and night to night declares knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words;
their voice is not heard;
yet their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world." (Ps 19)
So I guess there was some church for me to go to today.
Tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day. I am much impressed by the fact that this pastor led a nation to see better who we are called to be. His Christian faith led him to be an unstoppable force of betterment, not just change, but change for the better. That's what faith can do, should do.
MLK was a man of faith and a man of The Book. In his speeches, Bible comes out naturally and authentically. How appropriate it is that we are meeting tomorrow evening at 7PM on Martin Luther King Day to continue reading from Mark's Gospel in our Bible Study Group.
It's a long weekend. We weren't able to gather for our Sunday church Service this weekend, but we can still come together over God's Word. I hope to see you then.
Faith, love and chitchat.
