As our last week of the season of creation we have had a focus on rivers, and on water.
Water is life for us as humans but also for our creation. It was the beginning of life and the beginning of Jesus’ ministry and the beginning of new life for us through baptism. But water is a resource we have not always looked after and appreciated.
Water can be gentle, still and peaceful, but water is powerful. With enough time water can wear away a mountain, or smooth the edges of a rough stone. With enough small moments and small steps, God can smooth the rough edges in our lives and transform us.
With enough small moments and steps we can help transform others lives. And with enough small actions by enough people we can help to positively transform creation.
