Connected Beauty

Pam captured this evening light at Clark Lake
What does it take to bring you this beauty?

Light and shadow, field and forest, water and sky, clouds and clearing...
  Camera and dock, generous public parks and patrons, paths and time to use them...
    Technology to capture and share this precise moment...
      A connected community of faith that shares our dancing hearts...

I've had an extended week of beauty, beginning with Nic at night coming to Jesus last Sunday, extending to our annual meeting that sparkled with good news and hope filled ministry, extending to a prayer retreat and a bishop's convocation reconnecting with colleagues who serve God's church, extending to band practice last evening preparing for this Sunday's celebration,  extending to a pastor's breakfast and celebration of music at Seattle Christian School where two of our members attend. Beauty has filled the eyes and ears and life of this beholder!

I live inspired and amazed by beauty that surrounds and fills my senses. I work in my life to contribute to the vast collection of good God gathers. And I wonder, where has God brought beauty and bounty into your life? How are you called to connect that to your community?

Peace,
Pastor Mark
