FAIRVIEW COLUMNS

OUR WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
FAIRVIEW FAMILY,
A dense fog met me on my way into the church parking lot on Tuesday, and I thought I'd share this photo with you. Also see the one below of a beautifully intricate spider web tethered to the stop sign across the road. These are further reminders for me of the God that we serve. By the word of His power He made the heavens and the earth, and He called it good. Today, though living in a world marred by sin, what a blessing it is to live in such a place where there is so much beauty in creation. John Calvin surely felt this way in his own place and time for he once exclaimed that creation is "a glorious theater," adding "wherever you cast your eyes; there is no spot in the universe wherein you cannot discern at least some sparks of his glory."

Looking forward to worship with you on Sunday when we shall glorify the God of glory.
