I walked on the trail at 5:15 this morning. When you must be at church at 7:30, then you walk early. It rained a little, and the birds sang with great abandon at that hour. A choir praising God.
Church went well enough. A women’s chorus sang a lovely anthem for Father’s Day. After church someone asked me if I had any special plans for today. Her family was having a cookout for its Dads. I said, “I will probably read a book.” I do not have a father, and I am not a father myself, so there isn’t much to do on Father’s Day.
So I am reading this afternoon. I gleaned this from Austin Farrer, “The more emptied out you are, the more hope there is of your learning to be a Christian.” True! It made me smile. I have nothing, but I possess everything in the inverted world of the kingdom of God (2 Cor 6:10).
