RCC Weekly Update 07/15/21
An Update from Pastor Jerry
Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert, and June through September is monsoon season. Which basically means you can get about a month of Seattle rain in two and a half minutes, then it’s back to arid, hot weather. The rain is usually accompanied by lightning, high winds, and the possibility of significant dust storms - which, as you can see, can provide for some amazing sunset weather (yes, that was actually the color outside).
“Desert” typically brings images of hot, dry, uncomfortable, and lifeless. As I’ve watched the storms come through, however, I’ve noticed an incredible diversity of life thriving all around us. We’ve had cactus blooming, baby lizards, and some form of dove that (loudly) “welcomes” the new day at around 5:30AM! These past couple weeks have been a beautiful reminder that, wherever you find yourself in life, God is there. Even if you feel you’re in a “desert,” He’s right there with you, offering shelter, and comfort, and LIFE.
I pray that you’re having a wonderful week and ask that the Lord would reveal that same encouraging picture of His presence in your life today!
Looking forward to seeing everyone in August,
Our Special Speaker this Sunday
