I think it is quite noticeable that winter is upon us. The cold, windy days that call for us to rug up with our winter coats, scarves, gloves and beanies has arrived. Our seasons remind us that there is a majesty and beauty in God’s creation. The God of all seasons reminds us that our lives go through changes as the seasons do. We can experience seasons of hardship, seasons of ease, seasons of rapid growth and change, and seasons of peace and consistency. These are the seasons of human life. The wonderful thing about the earth’s seasons is that they are consistent in their changing. We never endure an icy cold winter and its chilly winds without the hope that spring will soon come again, and warmer and sunnier days will arrive. This we can apply to life’s seasons as well.
We are never promised that life will always be easy. There are challenges we all face as individuals and within our families as well. But our faith can reassure us that God will never abandon us in our times of need even when we think he may not hear our prayers. In every season of our lives, he is present in the ebb and flow. In difficult times, this promise or reassurance can give us the hope we need until the next season comes. This becomes the majesty and beauty of our lives.
Let us come together,
our community, a place of warmth in our lives
as we share the flame of hope and connection.
Let us allow the frost and harshness of challenging times to melt away
as we open ourselves to a sense of peace and spirit.
We extend our thoughts to all those who are cold this winter lacking comfort or love to keep them warm.
Let us wrap our prayers around them and each other like our winter accessories
and wish each other safe journeys through this season.
