This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: he shines in all that’s fair; In the rustling grass I hear Him pass; he speaks to me everywhere.
Maltbie Babcock wrote these words in 1901, inspired by hikes around New York, where he lived.
This time, the center of summer, with long days, bright blue skies and a palette of greens in the trees and grasses and fields is just a start to how God speaks. During a walk at night, fireflies blink on and off, the moon shines bright and a chorus of frogs fill the night with sound.
I am ever amazed at the process of new life. A little tiny seed becomes a carrot, a tiny bird’s egg—the size of the tip of my finger, hatches and that tiny little bird soon flies around the yard. The Asiatic lily faithfully emerges from the cool soil each spring and by mid-summer bursts open into a breathtaking sight. The creation all around is awe inspiring.
One activity I often do with the youth is to have them identify all the ways and places they have seen God’s presence that day or in their lives. Often, they mention creation.
And so, it is easy for some to say, “I don’t need to gather for worship, I can see God all around me.’ While being in creation has an emotional effect, it can’t do what worship can do.
Being present in worship is coming together in thanks and prayer and praise to God. It is an experience of intimacy, joy and peace shared with the whole body of Christ.
For sure worship doesn’t have to happen inside a building. One of the most memorable worship times for me was on the south shore of Lake Superior. On that Sunday morning with the strong wind blowing the cool air off the lake, the breath of the Holy Spirit filled the space.
May you experience the power of the Holy Spirit as you are called, gathered and enlightened together with all the body of Christ in these beautiful summer days! Pastor Carol
