A friend posted on Facebook a picture riddle. There were rows of identical keys except hidden in one of the rows was a key that differed slightly. The riddle proclaimed that only 3% of people could find the odd looking key. I'm happy to proclaim I was a 3 percenter! So I'm going to present you with a picture riddle regarding JCPC Drive In Worship. Look at this picture of Jeff Arnold and Brian Daoust.
When you attend Drive in Worship you will encounter these masked men; but I can assure you they are most welcoming! Now look at this picture of Jeff and Brian.
What do you notice are the differences between picture one and two? How many can you see?
How many of you noticed the shade? In the morning sun beaming over the West Parking lot there is welcoming shade; shade that provides respite and rest.
Psalm 121 offers us an image of shade that is comforting:
I lift up my eyes to the mountains-
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip-
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you-
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm-
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Remember to seek out the shade! You just might discover the one who provides shade is our Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer!
