Sitting on the square in Magdalena de Kino, Mexico last Tuesday night, one could see the twilight fading and the light of a distant planet shining as a backdrop for this church. It made me think of this scripture. Our buildings can't contain Him, the Creator of all. He looks to the humble.

How many around us are peering around the corner, wondering if God can be trusted...if this church thing is real...if maybe, just maybe, it's for me?

"...Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; that he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word." (Eph. 5:25-26)
Notice how the rock in the middle is free of moss? It doesn't always feel good to have that constant pounding, scrubbing, purging...but the Lord is working to present us, the church, to Himself without spot or wrinkle.

"Even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these...take therefore no thought for the morrow..." (Matt. 6)
I haven't heard any good reason that flowers are beautiful other than God is infinitely creative and shows His glory in creation.

I come to the garden alone
While the dew is still on the roses
And the voice I hear falling on my ear
The Son of God discloses.
And He walks with me, and He talks with me,
And He tells me I am His own;
And the joy we share as we tarry there,
None other has ever known.
("In the Garden")
Yes, I know those are Asiatic Lilies, not roses. But they were rain-kissed on that Saturday morning as I sat on the porch for some quiet time, and it reminded me of this sweet old hymn.
