Sunday Morning

The voice, the tale, the image, the parable that gets through to you – that wins your heart – religiously is the one that makes it past your defenses. You’ve been won over, and you probably didn’t see it coming. You’ve been enlisted into a drama, whether positively or negatively, and it shouldn’t be controversial to note that it happens all the time. When you really think about it, there’s one waiting around every corner. It’s as near as the story, song or image you can’t get out of your head. Religion happens when we get pulled in, moved, called out or compelled by something outside ourselves. It could be a car commercial, a lyric, a painting, a theatrical performance or the magnetic pull of an Apple store. The calls to worship are everywhere.

  7. I love studing clouds, started as a child and came in handy when studying to be a pilot. Failed test, to much math for me.

    The photo is absolutely fabulous…it is presented in color through the link “Behind The Small House” my screen is small so I’m not able to see it all at once with your offering…I think that viewing the photo in Black and White shows more clarity of depth and is more dramatic!

    adding more after your reply (& word press is still glitchy) I errored, Dave…I didn’t realize there is a slide show! Glad I viewed your photo offering is only in black and white and is dramatic and phenomenal and I so love it! /// I took a few cloud photos earlier this week and I think that one of my early comment when I found your .com dealt with clouds
