Grass Thoughts first appeared in the recently published Summer 2020 edition of God and Nature Magazine. A publication of the American Scientific Affiliation, the magazine dedicated the issue to perspectives on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
I hope you’ll put your feet up and read the whole thing. As you do, your understanding of the virus may stretch. Your your chosen response to it may shift.
You may even see God at work in new ways.
Regardless, I hope you’ll consider this an opportunity to hear Christ-followers from the scientific community around the world as they grapple with the implications of a bug that’s affecting us all.
You can find the entire issue in the link above and here.
Read it with Grass Thoughts in mind.
A child said, What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.
I guess it must be the flag of my disposition, out of hopeful green stuff woven.
Or I guess it is the handkerchief of the Lord, scented gift and remembrancer designedly dropt,
Bearing the owner’s name someway in the corner, that we may see and remark, and say Whose?
“In pastures of tender grass He causeth me to lie down, by quiet waters He doth lead me.”
“. . . we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.”
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
And in an eggshell . . .
Here are other posts I’ve shared elsewhere this week. Random, but they dovetail with the above. Hope you can see how. :).
“Milk is for beginners, inexperienced in God’s ways; solid milk is for the mature, who have some practice in telling right from wrong.”
“You protect me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance.”
“Designate a place outside the camp where you can go to relieve yourself.”
Blessings, friends. Thanks for stopping by.
