Reflection: One of the first things I was taught in Sunday School was “God created Heaven and Earth”. Then at church camp we sang “This is My Father’s World’’. In verses 36 and 37 of Acts 10, Peter tells us that “God through Jesus is the Lord of all creation”.
God’s love is endless; placing no boundaries. Everyone can come to Him as we are all His children. Recently a nor'easter hit our area and parts of our town were without power. Our church was open as a warming shelter. God's creation unleashed some mighty weather. God's people welcomed all His children who needed warmth and light. -- Alice Yeakel
