Thought for the Week BEYOND THE WINTER
James HendersonBeyond The WinterHello,

Has there been any good news recently? Of course, there has been, but you might have to look long and hard to find it.

An item that caught my attention was about the re-emergence of a flower that was once thought to have disappeared completely. Having ploughed through reports about contentious international and domestic politics, possible nuclear conflict, disruptive and changing weather patterns, concerns about increased terror attacks, and column after column of celebrity gossip, there was, unexpectedly and perhaps incongruously, a short article about a small yellow flower that resembles a dandelion. Itís got the unlikely name of the leek-coloured hawkweed, and it has been re-discovered. Previously this uniquely English flower was thought to have become extinct over 60 years ago, but it has been found again in the Derbyshire area of the UK.

The story reminds me of a biblical passage about how, after the struggles of a long and difficult winter, the flowers appear again. Itís the Christian message of hope for our hopeless world. Despite all the upheaval thatís going on in our crazy mixed-up world, thereís going to be a tomorrow of new life and vitality because of what Jesus has done, is doing, and will do for us.

This is how the Bible describes the future beyond our present world troubles that seem to be crowding in on us more from day to day: See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land (Song of Songs 2:11-12, NIVUK).
