Sweet Mystery of Life
None of the headlines generated any ideas today but the minster's sermon title did. Today was Epiphany which Christian tradition holds as the day that the human Jesus was revealed as God the Son. Our minister began with a story illustrating the miracles of seeds. While trying to maintain attention to the sermon, I began to look for pictures. Our church, like many, always have several poinsettias around the sanctuary during the Christmas season. And poinsettias with their wonderful rich colors and leaves are "miraculous" in their own way. After everyone had left the sanctuary I returned, did a little rearranging at the pulpit and turned the minster's reading light down on the pulpit scarf and the poinsettias. Image was taken with my Sony Xperia TL smartphone (yes the James Bond one) and then processed in NIK Color Efex. Many mysteries abound around us if we just look.
