According to the passage from Jeremiah that I will be sharing this Sunday, there are some people who are people of Spring Time. They are the ones who hold groups together. Without them, families would distance themselves from one another, churches, communities and nations. These happy bridge-builders remind the old prophet Jeremiah of springtime.
This weekend we are going to celebrate springtime come rain or come shine. I challenge all of us to dress for spring. The weather report says that it is going to continue to drizzle but, nevertheless, we are going to celebrate springtime with bold confidence that spring is coming. Warm Sundays, with birds singing with all their gusto, baby bunnies, squirrels, lambs, and flowers blessing us all around. Even the crankiest person will not be able to resist the renewing power of the miracle of springtime.
How would you like some springtime in your soul this weekend? New creativity, New joy, New friendships, New beginnings - God making all things new right before your eyes. I like the saying - "The day God created Hope was probably the same day that he thought up springtime." You and I need a day of springtime in our souls, so let's not miss the celebration this weekend.
Your friend for the rest of my life,
Pastor Tim White
