Hello Everyone

The Beauty of Creation

After the rain the past couple days, I’ve noticed new life and beauty spring forth from the earth. Psalm 104 speaks of the beauty of creation. The first verse reminds us to: 

‘Praise the Lord, O my soul. 
O Lord my God, you are very great;
You are clothed with splendor and majesty.’

Here in Fairview and in the surrounding area, the beauty of creation is all around us. We can see pussy willows at the side of the road and crocuses in the grass. Perennials are sending up new shoots and the tinges of green gives us promise of green grass in our lawns and fertility in the rich farmland of the area.

Psalm 104:31-33 declares:

‘May the glory of the Lord endure forever;
May the Lord rejoice in his works- 
He who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
I will sing the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.’

These words speak to my heart as I think of the music here at St. Paul’s. Music brings hope and joy to our church family.
