The clouds in the sky above are a fascinating phenomenon. Haven’t we all gazed at them and on occa- sion been spellbound by them? They can be thick or thin, they can be white and puffy, or dark and menacing, and they can appear in the most interesting sizes and shapes. In school we learned of the different formations which included Stratus, Cumulus, Cirrus, and Cumulonimbus. But no matter the name, they make for beautiful sunrises and sunsets. And they bespeak of heaven.

Last Sunday we began a New Church Year. The Advent Season, involving four Sundays, either starts in late November or early December. This is obviously out of cadence with the secular calendar. And that is because the Church Year emphasizes the sacred and transcendent. Christians recognize that the time marked by the secular calendar belongs to this age which is the result of God’s creation, for that is its beginning of time.

I mentioned last week two deceptions of the age we live in that may not be on our radar scope.

And I only hinted at the second one when I wrote of the attention we give to matters of comfort, convenience, and ease. I called that a spiritually lethal mix.

It is always a good spiritual exercise to pay particular attention to those elements of the faith, taught in Scripture, that cut against the grain of our own sensibilities. Otherwise, if we only are enthusiastic concerning those teachings that we already agree with, we have no way of knowing if we are humbly trusting God’s Word. It is when God’s word challenges our sensibilities that we have a chance to learn to trust God.
