... God of the Winds, God of the Rains ...

Since my last post, Nature has again showered down upon the earth via Hurricane Wilma. The temptation is to be overcome by the extent and reach of these recent natural disasters. But beneath it all, a question emerges: "What is it that you ask of us in the midst of this?"

In the words of Micah, "to act with justice, to love tenderly, and to walk humbly with God" or as it has been put elsewhere "to live simply so that others may simply live."

Indeed a challenge! What does it mean for each of us? Something different and unique, I imagine.

Beyond that, I believe God is calling us, challenging us, to reach in and unleash our goodness in a world hungry for goodness and wholeness.

Something to think about, that's for sure.

Bless us, O God of the Winds, God of the Rains,
God of all the earth, have mercy on us!
