April 16, 2021  update

Hello, Grace Family Members:

In  the aftermath of Easter and Holy Humour Sunday, we come to Earth Day which seems such a suitable place to be this weekend. The brief warm, sunny days we had have temporarily disappeared reminding us how much we depend on the world around us for sustainability and nurture, as well as mental health.

And the news this week-end that we are in for more stay at home time amidst a growing pandemic caseload, is a further nod to the truth that we are not as much in control of the world around us as we sometimes like to think.

Earth Day in a post-Easter world offers us the gift and good news that a Creator God is alive in our world. Deep-rooted plants and trees are beginning to blossom and we are the fortunate beneficiaries of the sights and sounds of this good earth.

Take a moment this week-end, as the world around us pauses, to give thanks for springtime and for the cycle of earth’s renewal that brings health and restoration to all creation. May we, too, feel that enlivening energy and connection with all growing things. Happy Earth Day!

Please stay home, stay safe, keep in touch and watch our livestream service on Sunday.
