Isn't it strange? It shouldn't be. But the thought that we can see God in everything, we just sometimes seem to forget.
During lockdown, being so fortunate to live at the top of Swaledale, I have been able to walk out everyday and see the beauty of creation. I have taken some photos and shared them with friends on Facebook. Those living some distance away have enjoyed the scenery and seeing the seasons change.
This week I took this photo, and a short video, of water bubbling out of the ground and a friend from within our circuit commented 'The picture today reminds me of Jesus' words to the woman at the well, of the water that he will give her is like a spring of water bubbling up..... '. I will always remember this now when I see water bubbling up and maybe ponder on the story of the woman as I wander on.
That led my thoughts to Forest Church. We can't actually meet face to face at the moment but here it is happening informally online. If you would like to share in more Forest Church thoughts, activities, ponderings then do look atAcross in the wood on Facebook. We are putting at least one post every week with a mix of pictures, bible verses, reflections, questions, activities and prayers. Sit back, or get out, and wonder at the world and our great God who made every detail of it.
