Reflections from the Bishop’s Desk
June is an interesting month in our calendar. It is primarily known for activities and celebrations, such as weddings, commencement exercises, excursions and barbecues. Conversely, there’s an ancient mariner poem which has these words forming the first line: “June too soon.” This is because it was considered the beginning of months, for the hurricane season; especially for those residing in tropical countries.
For us in America, June however, starts the festive time called summer. Chuck Swindoll expressed this in his book, The Seasons of Life. He said, “Summertime, and the livin is easy, fish are jumpin and the cotton is high, makes us wanna git right down and run around the house barefoot.” In this festivity, we have a weekend dedicated to celebrating our earthly fathers. By doing that, we are honoring our Father who is in heaven; for first, He is father to the fatherless, and then the rest of us.
So, saints, observe and enjoy this season of life and time, but let us not forget God who makes it possible, and gives us all things to enjoy. May we therefore, live our lives in appreciation of Him, and celebrate everything to His glory.
