Today I begin serving as your Interim Regional Minister. It is a day I have been thinking about for some three months, and anticipating for the past few weeks, since receiving the call from the Regional Church Council to serve in this position. I am glad to be here.

I attended Sunday School nearly every Sunday of my growing years and so I figure I’ve heard or read the story of Jesus feeding the thousands about a thousand times. Sometime in my adult years I began to wonder if Jesus actually transformed food for one boy’s family into a feast for five thousand. Sometime later I wondered if it mattered. Either way, Jesus gave thanks for what He had to share and God saw to it that everyone had enough. Could it be that the act of giving thanks for what we have will ensure that we have enough?

Heat waves are a fact of summer in Ohio. When one hits, people are turned into a pile of mush, the heat and humidity melting us like a snow person in March. Even my dogs are affected. I open the door to let them out, and they turn back to me as if to say, “Are you serious? You want me to go out there?”

I am sitting and watching the morning sunrise after a rainy evening. Grass and trees are drenched of water. As the sun rises each drop picks up the light of the bright orange globe and reflects it to the world around.
