Don’t you just love that phrase? It has a nice ring to it…speaks of strength and control of something seemingly out of control. Over the weekend we have been looking at photos and videos of the tornados that hit the southern USA. It’s hard to grasp the strength and breadth of those storms even from seeing the pictures. It’s even more difficult to fathom what people have lost (made me thankful for the privilege of fussing with yard work).
The reading today tells the story about someone who decides they don’t like the way the wind is blowing. They ask to be able to change it. Once they are handed the key to the wind they wonder if they might be destroying the eco-system that this wind strengthens so quickly give it back.
