This time of year helps us gear up for the work of warmer months, plan for summer vacation, and get ready for all sorts of summer fun. I hope to get some good fishing in the next couple of months and if anyone wants to hike the Missions with me I am always looking for company.
I hope this summer, as I hope every summer, that you might use the opportunity that nicer weather provides to encounter God in His creation. There is a beautiful world around us, especially here in western Montana, and it all has its source in our God who loves us. Every rock, mountain flower, tamarack tree, and mountain stream flows from God’s abundance. I am sure that most of you live daily recognizing that God is the source of all life, but it is powerful to take a walk through the woods and be immersed in the creative work of the divine. Whatever your plans may be for the summer months, I hope they include regularly seeking God in the wonderful world that God has made.
