Zis-N-Zat From Pastor Asher

God is my conscience, Jesus lives in my heart… this blog is about what I see, what I think, what I do and how I serve God

Weekly Reflection from Pastor Asher

Every season of the annual cycle is beautiful and reflects God’s creative and renewing presence in our world. Although I love and enjoy all seasons of the year and I have a special partiality for autumn. Growing up, autumn meant cooler temperatures, harvest of grapes, pomegranates, figs, and walnuts as well as mountains covered in brilliant colors. You could not miss or ignore autumn.

Living in the North-Eastern part of the United States of America it is impossible to miss the beauty of fall colors or to be unaware of the bounty of the harvest. It is not an accident that the USAmerican holiday of Thanksgiving is celebrated in the middle of Autumn.

Autumn is also the season when nature is getting ready to rest during the season of Winter before renewing itself during the season of Spring. It is not an accident that Easter, the time when we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and the renewing nature of our God, comes in the Spring. The truth is that without Autumn or Winter, there would be no Spring.

As the nature around us reflects majesty and glory of the Lord in changing leaves and the bounty of the harvest, I hope that all of us will take the time to enjoy the beauty and majesty of the season.

Prayer:

Loving, Gracious, and Creative God of the ordinary and extraordinary, give me a discerning eye to see the extraordinary in the ordinary things of daily life! Amen.
