Saying for the day: Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.C.S. Lewis
In what little blog reading I did this past week I came across two miracles, one had to do with a young person and the other a bus.
As A Christian I love miracles. I love that moment when God touches our human lives in unexpected and wonderful ways.
People ask me “ Pastor with so many miracles happening why don’t more people believe?”
The answer is that miracles don’t create faith they require faith to be seen.
The believer sees and rejoices.
The unbeliever sees and explains.
The unbeliever can not allow a miracle to change what they know to be true. So they talk of a weird set of circumstances or an unexpected reaction to a drug. They know there is no God so they can not in any way let themselves see Him at work.
It was so even when Jesus walked with the disciples and healed. Some people saw the hand of God breaking in in a new and wonderful way while others saw a man breaking the Sabbath.
I am so glad that God has allowed me to be one of those who rejoice.
#### News from Pigeon Falls-The little town in my basement where the trains still run, dragons fly, and life is back to normal. This morning there is not a pigeon to be seen. It’s like they are taking the day off. There is no cooing, no flapping of wings, no big white spots where there weren’t any a moment before. Nobody knows where the pigeons are or when they will return.
Other than that it is a normal Sunday in Pigeon Falls. The Pastors and the Priest have prepared their sermons, children are ready to do Christmas programs, fathers who haven’t been to church all year are resigned to go because the kid is in the program. Yep just a normal Sunday.
Petrovich and his wife have gone to Green Bay to worship at St. Matthew Orthodox Church. This means there will be no surprise pigeon driblet to explain the recent odd pigeon behavior. This , of course, is Petrovich’s annual pilgrimage .
Pastor Joan has prepared a sermon entitled “ When Pigeons Fall” and announced it on the church sign board. One thinks she is trying to pull in some of those tourists. The full title is “ When Pigeons Fall, and Other Signs of the End” but only the first part fit on the sign board.
Tommy UK will be the acolyte at Last Lutheran despite the fact that some think he is to blame for the exploding candle. He looks angelic in the white acolyte’s robe.
Today's Link-Daisy the Curly Cat- Never give up that's what this cat says.
Well I didn't get to church today as my stomach was still acting up. Did get to watch Green Bay win. Betty spent the day at Pennie's helping her put up a tree. I wrote our Christmas letter. Betty approved and we started printing it. I also worked on the addresses for the cards. Tomorrow I get to see the Doctor. Now I need a breathing treatment.
