Holy Grounds: Holding on to the Mystery

Spring has sprung, but hearts are still heavy. I came across this song by Kris Kristofferson (I know, but it really isn't yaught rock, I promise!) It's a good one. And it is the sigh from my heart as I encounter so much pain in this world.

Holy Grounds: Snowy Spring Mornings

It's April...

15 days after the beginning of spring
13 days after Easter
5 days after April Fools Day

And there is over 2 feet of heavy, wet snow on the ground.

We northerners are a hearty lot. People came in to church, trying to top each other's stories of harrowing rides into church, through slippery driveways and heavy snow drifts.

As the only church open within 50 miles, we gathered together, 40 brave souls, in the front of the sanctuary (after some coaxing) and sang Easter and Christmas songs together.

It was a good day.
