The sky which was threatening to fall-in turns from purple grief to a crimson hopefulness.
Luke 21:25-28; 34-36
Dry leaves plummet to the earth. Thank God for gravity as the earth welcomes the leaf fall; and nature returns and replenishes the leaves and more. New growth happens and we believe we will not be left without. Fruit ripens and our faith is renewed.
The sky which was threatening to fall-in turns from purple grief to a crimson hopefulness, as we commit to take the warning seriously. We ask of ourselves: have we been living sustainable lives? Have we been depleting the earth resources? Are there some that I wronged? Is there a deep calling that I am avoiding?
As we read the signs of the times and take heed of this warning, we contemplate how to stand erect and wait in hope. How to walk humbly with our neighbour. How to make people feel good by our greeting, by our sharing, by our conversations and by our listening. We ask: how can we better negotiate the spaces between us to make the community a welcoming space to all?
