Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.  —Matthew 10:29–31

When I think of the incredible, incomprehensible sweep of creation above me, I have the strange reaction of feeling fully alive. Rather than feeling lost and unimportant and meaningless, set against galaxies which go beyond the reach of the furthest telescopes, I feel that my life has meaning. Perhaps I should feel insignificant, but instead I feel the soaring in my heart that the God who could create all this—and out of nothing—can still count the hairs on my head. —Madeleine L’Engle, The Irrational Season, 1977

Under the canopy of sky this day brings I feel fully alive, grounded, worthy, treasured. I feel my heart soaring as I set restless self in your presence. Amen.  —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
