Welcome to the Cathedral Church of St. George

in Kingston, Ontario, Canada

 

The Very Rev. Don Davidson

It has been a bit of an odd start to summer this year. The amount of rain that has fallen has left me cutting my grass with far more regularity that in most summers, but the positive side of that is that my garden is flourishing, and I have already been enjoying the crops it is producing. As I watch grey clouds scudding across the sky again this morning, I am reminded of trips into this area at this time last year, when we were experiencing a huge drought. It is amazing how nature has a way of balancing things out.  One year, the water table is seriously depleted. The next year, heavy rains raise it back to normal and beyond.  This is yet another of the wonders of God’s great creation.

As we use these summer days to enjoy the wonder and the beauty of God’s creation, let us not forget to return to God with Thanksgiving. Whether it is dry or wet, this gift of creation remains an incredible gift for which we must give thanks. Take an hour out of the gift of time God has given you this week, and come and pray.
