On Fire and the Promise of God

For those who have not seen anything but the news reports about the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs.  Here are a couple of photos that will remind us all of the power of flame.

The Wilson United Methodist Church is visible in the lower right hand corner of the first picture.  In spite of the fact that 348 homes burned to the ground from the edge of the parking lot and up the hill 1/2 mile...she still stands today.

The second photo is an image of North West Colorado Springs being evacuated.  There is terror behind every steering wheel.

But in every disaster, every painful experience, every moment when you think you will never breathe again...the promise of God continues to show up in the most interesting places.  In the Springs, we simply call it "The Garden" but to all, it is The Garden of the Gods.

Thank God for rainbows!
