Sacred Hope

“Christ brought you over to Gods side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence.” Colossians 1:22 The Message

By living from a place of vulnerability, I learn about the goodness of God. God interacts with all people all his creation. My image of God and the nature of the relationship I have with God and his creation has changed over the years. Now I recognize the responsibility I have in my own healing and in the healing of others and our earth. The love of God that is present in others, connects me to them, brings me comfort through life’s struggles and reminds me I’m not alone. It connects me to the love and natural order and care so, evident in nature and all God’s creation.

We stand at a critical moment in Earth’s history, a time when humanity must choose its future. As the world becomes more interdependent and fragile, the future holds great peril but, also great promise. We must recognize that in the midst of diversity and cultures and life forms we are one human family and one Earth community with a common destiny. Founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Taken from the preamble of “The Earth Charter.”

What seems like a life time ago, I worked in a lab. It was fascinating to see a whole other world through a microscope. If you have ever looked at the world through a microscope, you can’t deny the incredible order in creation. God is powerful in his incredible design, order and beauty. Even with the naked eye we see beauty all around us. We know this is powerful stuff. I find sacred hope in the great love and generosity of God's heart.

Father God, Thank you for the generous reminders that we, everything created is interconnected. We marvel at the design and love you have for us all and your world. We trust your healing presence in our lives and the empowering spirit you give us all for change, through the Living Christ. Amen
