God 101

“For the eyes of faith, every created thing manifests the grace and providence of Abba.

We’re all signed up for God class. Sometimes we're spending time in the Book.  More often, we take field trips. Sometimes group field trips, but usually field trips just by ourselves.  Today's assignment:  “Look for signs of God.  Report your findings.”  We find that clues are everywhere and it looks like He’s still on the move!  Twigs are broken and His tracks are still wet.  Seems He’s everywhere.
The assignments and tests are all open-Book.  Sometimes we get A’s.  Sometimes D’s.  Often we just plain flunk the exam.  We forget to study.  We forget our Book.  We lose our #2 pencils.  We forget we can work together.  Our Professor says, though, that as long as we stay in the class, we’ll get through the course.
The course: lifeGod 101.  Independent study, done together.  Life, a course in knowing God.
