Transformation: Beauty and Goop

I've always been fascinated by the lessons we have to learn from the patterns of nature! This week in worship as we celebrate Children's Sabbath, our lesson comes from Romans, and from butterflies. Butterflies are beloved, colorful creatures. In the Christian faith they symbolize resurrection, and for many they are a sign of hope and beauty. But those beautiful, winged creatures don't always look like the ones we love to see in gardens. They transition and process from caterpillar to cocoon to butterfly. Join us this Sunday as we bless backpacks, celebrate our children on their way to school and learn a lesson or two on the beautiful, goopy transformation of a butterfly, that might just be meaningful in our own journeys through life and faith.
