28 June Sunday What Might the World Look Like? We live in a culture that celebrates ‘ME. What I think and want and like seem paramount. The needs and dreams of other people don’t seem to count. What might the world look like if we truly celebrate and welcome all people. Blessings, Marvin

During these days of worry and fear, of mourning and anxiety it is good to hear a story about fierce love, sacrificial love that has a happy ending. The Ojibway of southern Canada tell such a story about an epidemic of their own that explains the origin of our beautiful lady slipper orchids.

Sunday June 21 Fierce Love These are days of such tension and stress that it is good to remember the great, all encompassing love of God for us. The love of God is a fierce love, a divine spark that ignites our lives. It is a love that will not let us go.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu is man filled with God’s love which flows out from him into loving actions. Even after contracting cancer as a result of the horribly toxic stories he heard as chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa he remains a man of love, welcome and cheer.

We learn much of our theology from our hymns. This is Father’s Day and the Scripture brought to mind that lovely hymn, “This Is my Father’s World” The third verse was rather insistent in speaking about today’s world. “This is my Father’s world, Oh let me ne’er forget That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet. This is my Father’s world; why should my heart be sad? The Lord is king; let the heavens ring. God reigns; let the earth be glad. Aloha. .lleluia
