love these pictures....

While waiting to celebrate the second Sunday in the Season of Creation - Land Sunday - I took this shot from the unique vantage point of the preacher's seat.

Here's another taken from the Nave of the Sanctuary showing the recently added birch trees. The Choir sang "Make Me an Instrument of Your Peace." Jon and I played Cat Stevens' "Where Do the Children Play?" And I reflected on the arc of the Hebrew creation stories as a critique against living as if we knew better than the Creator. The whole movement of Genesis 1-11 highlights that when we move out of balance with nature, we begin to manipulate and abuse the soil. The more accustomed we get to abuse, the wider it expands until the land, God's creatures and even our sisters and brothers are destroyed by violence.
