The Pastor's Post
Admittedly, the recent “Total Eclipse of the Sun” was fairly underwhelming here in AZ. On the day that it occurred, Monday August 21, I worked in the pastor’s study and watched as the mid-morning light turned to a dusk like glow, and then a couple of minutes later went right back to our regular Valley of the Sun view.
And yet, I had another view I’ll never forget. Watching online, through text messaging, and seeing news reports later in the day, I watched as millions of Americans, all across the country came together and looked skyward as the moon moved directly between the earth and sun. How awesome to see so many focused on one singular event; how amazing and what beautiful a view.
I heard many people make reference to the eclipse as spiritual. I understand the sentiment. Still, for me, the true spirituality of the day was found as people of all walks of life, all ages, and all genders, were connected by an action beyond our control. Spirituality is the connection we share one with another and with a higher power. The connection I saw us sharing that day, and the one I experienced, was truly spiritual.
Little did I know that less than a week later it would all happen again. Not another eclipse, but this time nature demanded our attention in a devastating disaster named Hurricane Harvey. Most certainly, this was a wicked storm causing loss of life, displacement, property damage, and a disruption of routine bound to last for months and years. Still, the strength of our human connection became apparent as people literally reached out to help one another; neighbors, strangers, and rescue workers sought to save those in danger. What a horrible storm. What a beautiful display of humanity.
Sometimes I think we have a little too much time on our hands in this nation that we fill with protests and arguments. Make no mistake there are many issues needing constructive debate. Yet, when events - totally out of our control - take charge, the reality of our shared humanity becomes evident. Yes, we are connected, one to another, to all of creation, and to the source of all that is. And when that connection is on display - twice in one week - I find it to be absolutely reassuring and amazingly spiritual. Thank God!
P.S. Since writing this the last week of August, we have also seen destruction caused by Hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Maria. Again, people are connecting through those recovery efforts. Prayers continue for all assisting and needing assistance – especially Puerto Rico.
