 A Word from Father Mike July 14, 2019

This morning I sat on the shore of Lake Winnebago for a few minutes. It was late morning. I sat in the shade and watched thousands of bright, tiny suns flash on top of the waves. A family of ducks paddles back and forth in front of me. A couple of small birds chirped overhead.

Summertime in Wisconsin overflows with beautiful nature scenes. They invite us to respond to the miraculous abundance of Mother Nature. There is a strong Christian tradition that recognizes God’s presence in every single part of the created world.

May the beauty of these summer days speak to you of the tender love that The Holy One shows to all of creation.

May the generosity of the summer plants that produce fruit, vegetables and flowers to grace your table speak to you of God’s constant, loving care for you and those you love.
