Yesterday my prelude to worship started in the garden and then moved into the sanctuary.
a place where love, and memory, and hope, and promise are all represented in these flowers
Jesus is God's invitation!
because the power of love breaks open every grave, or every type
I wonder what else I miss, living my life so much of the time without stopping along the way, or taking a different turn, or noticing the beauty all around me?
The love for beauty in our gardens has the same unifying effect as the beauty of love in the congregation.
there is no point in meditation if it doesn't bring us any closer to the heart of God, and spur us to practice more love for God's children, love applied with all the prayer and enthusiasm that we can muster.
