“Lack of repentance is the root cause of powerlessness in the church, in this materialistic self-indulgent age. There can be no spiritual power in a non-repentant church.” -- Dietrich Bonhoffer.

Harvest
Harvest has come, the colors glow,
In the many types of flowers they show,
The fruit hangs ripened on the tree,
A tasty treat for you and me,
The pumpkins with their golden hue
Mean pumpkin pie for me and you
The corn has ripened nice and sweet,
A fall favorite for us to eat
Do you wonder how it all came to be,
This harvest, this variety?
The God who loves us made it all,
This glorious harvest in the fall.

Fall Summer's over, fall has begun The days are shorter, not so much sun But each season has it's time and place Its contribution, its own little space To shine and give us variQus lessons Its seasonal workshop in many sessions What do we learn from the season called fall? One thing is preparation, but that's not all, The invigorating air seems to call us to do The outside things that wait all summer through For cooler weather and more ambition Guess it's kind of a yearly tradition This fan awakening to do what's needed And the knowledge that it's His voice we have heeded.
