As I sit here in the warmth of my office I see that the old mercury has fallen to -1 degrees F. I ventured outside to check on the church and noticed that our digital thermostat was not reading a number all it said was low. I was expecting it to say hey turn on the heat!
It is times like this that I call to mind those who have no place to keep warm and who live on the streets. We can debate the reasons latter but let us remember them today and also those who work outside for a living. I have one parishioner who works for the power company and this time of year they are very busy. Keep safe and warm today and lift up those outside in prayer.
