"SPEER-itual Moments"

By: Rev. Gary H. Speer

autumn to show itself more fully. Hasn’t happened yet…
I love the autumn season but usually in these parts we go back and forth between cool and HOT and then cool again…and then finally the leaves will begin to change color…and maybe before it turns cold we will have a little autumn.
One thing I love during the autumn season are the views we have from our location atop our little high spot here at the church…and during the autumn season as the sun sets, the views are beautiful from this vantage point, and the sun as it shines through the west window of the church.
A couple of weeks ago as I arrived here for bible study, the sun was shining through the window brilliantly, and the way it shone on the parament on the lectern was stunning…the sun was hitting the chalice on the parament just so and the chalice seemed to come alive.

This picture doesn’t do it justice, but I share it anyway.

It reminded me of the need we have to shine ourselves…Jesus told us “we are the light of the world” and more than ever it seems this light is needed.
Come to church…you never know what you might find when you are here, and then what you can do as those on whom Jesus’ light has shined.
