The Church Of Thunder & Lightening

Organic . . . . A seed falls . . . finds itself in soil . . . the natural processes of the Creator, through rain, sun, nutrients . . . bring about, eventually perhaps a tree . . . which flowers, and then later even fruit . . . .

A scientist may spend years in a lab, working at painstaking tasks and calculations . . . to concoct some variant of an already created thing . . . and yet it pails in comparison to what God provides through nature, every day, in millions and billions and trillions of ways . . . continuously . . . .

Always, the most deliberate efforts of the creature--life works--a magnum opus . . . a pinnacle of achievement, wrought with self-determined and self interested hands and mind . . . yet fades and corrupts--remains flawed, and cannot hold a candle to even the humblest of God's creations . . . a fly, a blade of grass . . . the sky . . . water . . . fire . . . .

The best, most colorful and memorable names of locales are usually derived from spontaneous, obvious, and casual observances . . . of the terrain, or an event that took place there . . . .

Owl's Head . . . Knob Hill . . . Cut and Shoot . . . Choctaw . . . Hiwassee (stone wall in Cherokee) . . .
Schuylkill (hidden river, Dutch) . . . .

So it is with the Church of Thunder And Lightening . . . .

Some no longer attend a physical church . . . . Some do.  In either case, the church, is the body of believers, wherever they gather, whether in a building . . . or, in cyberspace . . . .

If God answers my dreams, some day there will be a building--a place of physical gathering, for it has long been in my heart to see and do . . . . Who knows, there may even be "kraals" of safe haven . . . .

In any case, preaching goes on here, and here is a church, named by certain proximity to events and people . . . . and if you don't have a church, you can tell someone who asks, you sometimes attend the Church of Thunder And Lightening.  It is a biblically based, Jesus centered church--gathering--where matter of the Spirit are discussed and the Word is preached, sincerely and with a goal ever-increasing dedication to the Good News Gospel, salvation through acceptance of and belief in, and by the sacrifice of the Son of God, Yahweh of the bible. 

I believe there one day will be a place to meet . . . physical . . . . Though in the meantime, meeting goes on now, in the spirit and via the blessing side of the Internet and the written word . . . . God's will be done, in any case . . . . .

He laid that on me today . . . and prompted me to suggest and share it . . . . fwiw . . . .
