Hope and Happenings, September
We find ourselves in these days of late summer, in a world of smoky haze. For some of us, it's caused us to confine ourselves indoors, and wonder when it will all end. Yet we are relatively far removed from the fires that are causing our discomfort.
We can only imagine the anguish of those whose homes and livelihoods have been lost, or are being threatened by the fires raging near them. We can only imagine the exhaustion of those charged with fighting the fires day in and day out. We can only imagine the confusion and fear of the wildlife whose habitat is being destroyed by fire.
It is in these hazy days that we must ask ourselves questions about climate change, and how our stewardship of the lands and waters entrusted to us by God has played a role in the changing climate conditions that have fed the fires.
And, in these hazy days, we must draw together in prayer for those places and people affected by the devastation that a forest fire leaves in its wake. As part of God's community of people called to love, our prayers are one way we can lend our support to those suffering from more than some annoying smoke in the air.
May our prayers be for safety, for hope, for strength and courage. May our actions reflect care for our world, and all that live in it. May it be so.
Blessings, Tammy (Reverend Tammy Allan)
