Usually, I don’t complain about the weather, but yesterday morning could have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. That was until I walked out of church at 12 noon and saw how quickly it was melting. That is the wonderful news about wet, heavy snow in springtime! The waters that trickle down off icicles and pool in the low spots are the very waters which God pulled back and dry ground appeared, first in creation and again at the Red Sea.
These waters are both chaotic and creative. They are disastrous and beautiful. Frozen waters kept some of you from gathering with us; (those of us who ventured out completely understand). At the same time, God welcomed Theo Muller through the waters of Baptism. We give thanks for God’s grace and mercy which is extended to us all in many ways. As this Lenten season continues, I pray the weather will hold, so that we can continue to grow in our knowledge and trust of Jesus Christ, his death and resurrection.
