“I Thank God for This Most Amazing Day”

CN_Skyline Mt DiabloSpring has arrived, Easter has passed, and Earth Day is upon us. We are invited to open ourselves with wonder and reflect upon our relationship and responsibility as part of nature.

Join us this Sunday, as we celebrate Earth Day with our amazing Green team! Catherine K. invites you to think about what you do, have seen, and want to change to bring about a healthier environment for all people and animals. We’ll share these ideas in an open discussion on Sunday.

In honor of Earth Day, I  share with you a poem of gratitude by e.e. cummings.

I THANK YOU GOD FOR MOST THIS AMAZING DAY

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
e.e. cummings
1894-1962

Love, Pastor Laurie
