    We all have images that are seared into our memories. In some cases, these may be beautiful images—like the sight of one’s bride walking down the aisle or the view from the top of a mountain on a crystal clear day. In other cases, these may be awful images—like the newsreel of a terrorist attack or the unwelcome appearance of a loved one in a casket. Images have a way of sticking with us. They live on, long after the eyes have first taken them in. Ezekiel was a man who understood this truth well.

    How can we as a church embrace a more comprehensive approach to spiritual formation and discipleship? That was the question I posed at the end of this past Sunday’s sermon in an effort to spark some creative thinking about what it might look like for us to become more diligent caretakers of creation. After seeing from Scripture how Jesus has come to reconcile all things to God, I suggested that the church has the privilege of joining God in his renewal and restoration of all things. As Christians, we need to incorporate this responsibility into our pursuit of faithfulness as followers of Jesus. But the question that I’m left with is still this: How?

    The USDA attempts to promote balance in nutrition. Currently, if you visit choosemyplate.gov you will see a multi-color logo that encourages portions among fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy (note the absence of chocolate, coffee, and candy – bummer). Variety among these food groups is for our health. A healthy body requires a comprehensive approach.
