IMG_3760 two birds singing


I love waking to not only the light of a new day but also the songs of the birds in the maple and scotch pine trees around our downtown home. John Donne called the song birds of the earth ‘heavenly choristers’, and I agree. As we gather for our second annual outdoor service, we will consider ways the scriptures invite us to hear the birds call us to joy and trust, to God. To name just a few, think upon the insignificant sparrows cared for, the mother eagle sheltering her young, the birds nesting at the altar of the Lord. And we will sing with the birds, more hymns that usual, each of which refers to the birds and their praise. Have a look at the order of service below, and join us if you can, and linger for a congregational BBQ. (In the case of a rain cloud breaking, we will continue our songs but perhaps in the shelter of the sanctuary … as do the birds in the branches of the trees.)
