Beautiful Day

Welcome to Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent.

*We gather for come and go worship at Rock Canyon High School from 5:30-7:00 pm this evening. Hope to see you all there!

As we begin Lent, keep in mind, “The earth is degenerating these days. Bribery and corruption abound. Children no longer mind their parents. Everyone wants to write a book, and it is evident the end of the world is fast approaching.”

Sounds like the evening news or tomorrow’s headlines, doesn’t it? The truth is that this description of society was found inscribed on an Assyrian tablet dated 2000 B.C.

So it seems that the basic worries of life never change, but neither do the promises of God! The story of Noah and the flood in Genesis 6:22-9:17 tells us of God’s presence in the midst of massive destruction. In the moment of deathly danger, God's stories in the Bible speak and awaken hope where otherwise there is nothing else to hope for. The memories of being rescued from disaster do not deny disaster. They speak of the God who made the helpless disaster of God's people his own and who led God’s people out of it. 

The well-known 16th century church reformer Martin Luther when asked if the world ends tomorrow what would you do, responded, "Let us plant an apple tree today.”

Prayers: For climate change, political leaders, children, and the blessings of Lent.

Listen for the line “..see the bird with the leaf in her mouth. After the flood all the colors came out.” In U2’s song “Beautiful Day”

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
