  JULY 2018

 

 

 

Summer is a time of open road - a time for exploration - for winding down some small road you've never visited before. You want to go there just because you're curious and it seems to call. God is down the road. God is to be found in exploration. God is met by the curious. "Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in God." - St. Augustine.

PRAISE GOD FOR SUMMER ROADS WHICH PEAK OUR CURIOSITY. PRAISE GOD FOR OPEN SPACES.

Summer is a time for God through our free time. Summer is a time to leave our busy winter schedules, a time when the momentum of our life is interrupted. God is to be found in relaxation.

We have the privilege of being in school where we spend time reading the great literature, and science. We find ourselves writing papers, studying for test, passing examinations.

This is so ironic because the very word, "SCHOLA" from which we get the modern words, scholar and school, means FREE TIME. Schools and scholarship were originally meant to interrupt the busy times and to create some space, some free time to contemplate the mysteries of life. Now school is a time of pressure. So Summer lets the schools out and it presents free time to us. Time for a rarest of activities - time to think.

PRAISE THE GOD OF THE SUMMER WHO GRANTS US TIME TO THINK.

Summer is a time for the experience of God through rest. GOD IS THE God of the Sabbath. God Himself rests. In one of the lovely Genesis creation stories, God works and then rests.

"Thus the heaven and earth were completed with all their mighty throng. On the sixth day God completed all the work he had been doing and on the seventh day he ceased from all his work. God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because on that day he ceased from all the work he had set himself to do."

In summer's rest we meet the God of the seventh day - the God of rest. In rest - "in returning and rest you shall be saved. "Be still and know that I am God," saith the Lord, ... Be still.

PRAISE GOD FOR SUMMER'S REST WHEN WE MAY BE STILL AND KNOW THAT HE IS GOD.
