Pastor’s Pondering 10/21/2020

Last night, at midnight,

I found one of our cats

Playing with a snake.

Life surprises us,


Sometimes when we’re eager for a surprise,

Sometimes not.

As for the Lord,

Every day is made new.

A surprise we’re used to.

Though sometimes we still

Manage to see it in new light.

Therefore, let’s ask ourselves,

What’s old, grown, and graceful in its age?

What’s been here, and looks new

In this different light?

And what’s new, that will change us?

And then let’s go,

And live into God’s surprise.
