Ain't it funny how we get so many mixed signals from churches, but out there in God's creation they seem to be clear as crystal? Ponder these from my campsite above Moraine Lake at South Sister last month:
On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross. . .
And right across the way on the side of Broken Top, the hand of God put a cross a few thousand years ago when all of this was formed.
It comes out in beautiful relief every evening as the sun gets low. Perhaps 15 years ago I camped at this site and never saw the cross. My eyes were younger then. We see differently as we age.
Do you see the cross where you live and spend your time? If not, give your eyes a few more decades. Someday, you will see it. Our eyes may dim. Sosmetimes that's what we need to see God's clear signals.
