The Garden and The City
Summer is a time for being outside in Regina. People head to the cabin, go to camp, hike in the country, and explore gardens or city parks. We have great places in Regina for walking or biking.
Many Christians count on these times for renewal and rest. Being renewed by rest and time outdoors is part of who we are as human beings. In the beginning, God placed humanity in a garden among all the other creatures.
At the other end of time, however, Jesus chose a city to represent the future he was bringing to earth.
Whatever you are doing to enjoy your summer, let both these pictures reach your heart. Do get outside, but let time alone restore your love for people and your capacity to live in community.
Wherever you are, may you be strengthened and renewed inwardly.
With love, Pastor Joel
