Last Sunday I invited the congregation to think of themselves as Imagineers and Evangelists, coming up with new ideas to share the Good News of the gospel and to help us live out our faith in exciting new ways. One of our members, Hazel Ransom, came up with the idea of snow painting, and so was born the idea of God is Still Snowing Sunday. Our congregation is a Still Speaking church, a congregation that welcomes people regardless of who they are or where they are on life's journey. We believe that people should not place a period where God has placed a comma--in other words, that human beings are continuing to reach fresh insights about the God we meet through Jesus Christ. It was in that spirit that we choose to take a fresh look at snow, with a snow-related sermon and snow-themed refreshments. After church the young and young-at-heart members went outside to sculpt and paint the snow.
We can't stop the snow but we can enjoy it!
