Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.1 John 4:7-8
Rain-spattered morning. Cold, wet air; cold, wet streets; cold, wet dog. Sunrise behind the chill vapor, just the same. Hot coffee shared; hot shower; hot breakfast. Warm hearts; warm love. Home. Somewhere a bell rings an invitation. Church. Called together because, more than the surety of sun rising behind cold rain, Creator calls to creation and we come. Grace-spattered baptism.
