POWER of God...from an infant's view

Our rector, S, gave a great sermon the other day reminding us that the Holy Spirit is POWER, and often as Christians, we do not lean on the power of God to sustain us.

While I was in church, there was a small infant about two rows in front of me, wide-eyed and way above the legal limit for cute. As I watched the baby leaning on his mother's shoulder, I wondered what the world of the parish looked like to the child. He was not making an effort to pray or participate [obviously] but he was merely looking around and observing, soaking in all that the Lord was offering.

It reminded me that this was a Sunday I needed to be quiet. I needed to "soak up" all of that which was around me, and all of that power that God offers us.
