Thought of the Week:

Isn't it good to be Alive?

Action Plan:

This week, choose one facet of creation that you loveóbirds, trees, weather, soil, water, light, children, aging, sleep. Observe it, think about it, learn about it every chance you can, with this question in mind: if that element of creation were your only Bible, what would it tell you about God?

Pastor Karen Shimer is a person passionate about walking with Jesus and invested in living out God's messy love.  It isn't always easy, nor clear, but it is always rewarding and fulfilling, sometimes scary and often unpredictable.  Walking with God is like that.  Connect with Pastor Karen Shimer through her blog:

Come. Rest. Ask. Grow. Walk.
