Summer Lovin'

2019-06 - Trinity Life - Cover
The Summer is here, the weather is warm (for now). What are we going to do with the freedom that comes with Summer-time?

As the Spring has brought in the abundant green of God's creation, I have been thinking about the glories of his planet earth.

One idea that keeps coming to mind is the shear glory of the technology that is a tree.

Can you imagine us producing (with our current ability to 'make' things) a small package with the power of a seed?

What I mean is, a small self-contained unit that can be just dropped to the ground. Then, using only solar power, natural rainfall and the dirt under it, it will produces a great structure made out of the the dead stuff that is our soil.

This is amazing. Fruit to eat and wood to make things. A tree is an awesome piece of (carbon capture) technology. Technology we are nowhere near to achieving with all our advances in learning, design and manufacturing.

I would like to suggest that you (Christian or not) take time this summer to delight in God's creation. Go for a walk, climb a mountain, cross a river, and just enjoy the company of the one who made it.

This is our freedom - to enjoy the fruits of God's creation. His invitation to each of us is to come away with him. Amen

With love in Christ

These words often seem like flimflam. Easy to say and hard to do. There is only one fundamental way to be new, and that is to be born again.
This is the way that the apostle Paul signs off more than one of his letters.
As we look back, thankful for those who gave their lives in conflicts past and present, we also look forward. How should we remember as we move into the second century following the end of the first global war? We have we learnt...
