There’s New, Even In The Fall


It’s funny to talk about newness in the fall. Most people see autumn as the time when days get shorter and trees get barer.

Some feel the loss of summer so strongly that they have as much a sense of death from the crunchy leaves as they do from those hanging dummies that announce the Halloween season.

But what of the harvest? It’s new. Especially when you bite into that crispy Empire apple or chomp on a local ear of corn.

Football fans get a beginning. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is usually set in September. A new World Series champ will be crowned.

Here at Sonrisen.com, we have been awakened by Awaken, our new website that is meant to double as a devotional site and a meeting place for the greater church.

We are inviting churches and ministry leaders to send in their events for our regional calendar. You can use it both for prayer-points and as a practical get-to-know-what-other-churches-are-doing go-to. Either way, it’s a new way of connecting.

If the truth be told, any season can be used by God as the starting point for something really exciting. Sometimes winter weddings can have clear skies while some June brides have to reach for an umbrella.

As long as God decides to let this globe spin, there will an announcement of the life that caused The Son to rise.

PORTAL TO HEAVEN: Each day and season has a promise embedded in the never-ending possibility of the mind of God.

The Lord's unfailing love and mercy still continue, Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.The Lord is all I have, and so in him I put my hope. -Lamentations 3:22-24 (GNT)
