Summer is Here!
As we worship together over the next two months, and enjoy the warmth of the summer season, perhaps it could be a time for us to reflect on God's creation, and consider just how special our 'home' is. If we drive the 5 miles from Westgate to Stackpole Quay and walk the 1/2 mile over the headland,(that you can see directly over the beach), we arive at beautiful Barafundle Bay, the Sea and the amazing coastal views. How good is that?
Just think about it, 20 miles below us is molten rock - far too hot for us. Just 5 miles above us, we can't breath and its far too cold. When we compare this 25 mile deep band around the earth, to the diameter of the earth. It is, in comparison, about a quarter of the thickness of the eggshell on a chicken's egg!! Yet the earth has the perfect range of temperatures that enable us to live and flourish, enjoy daytime and night time, beautiful summer and winter seasons, work & play and praise God. The earth is also in a very special place in the solar system as well, it is called the “Goldilocks Zone”, neither too hot, nor too cold, it is just right. We are able to enjoy liquid water in our oceans! As far as we can tell, our Sun and planets, and our solar system are in a part of space between the spiral arms of our milky way Galaxy, nice and quiet! All of this, and so much more, is no stroke of cosmic luck, it is the provision of an all powerful, loving, Heavenly Father who created all these things for us.
Genesis 2 v 1-3
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that,
in it, he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

DAY 7. PSALM 7.
The Psalm today looks at the persecution that is faced by those seeking to walk on the path of righteousness with their Lord and Saviour.
The Greek Potter
Some years ago I went for a break on a small Greek island, that was not over run by tourists, a really beautiful spot for rest and quiet.
