Dear Glen Mar friends,
On this Earth Day (as I write this), I give thanks for the Author of all creation, who made the earth, sky and sea and all that is in them. One of the most surprising things to me about this COVID shutdown time is the effect that ceasing of human activity had on the environment. Clear skies over our major cities and creation bursting forth with an even greener green and even more full-throated birds are hidden gifts of the past year.
I was listening to the song “The Color Green” by Rich Mullins this morning, so I shall leave these lyrics with you.
And the moon is a sliver of silver, like a shaving that fell on the floor of a carpenter's shop.
And every house must have its builder, and I awoke in the house of God, where the windows are mornings and evenings, stretched from the sun, across the sky north to south.
And on my way to early meeting, I heard the rocks crying out:
Be praised for all Your tenderness by these works of Your hands
Suns that rise and rains that fall to bless and bring to life Your land
Look down upon this winter wheat and be glad that You have made
Blue for the sky and the color green that fills these fields with praise.
