In his classic work Mere Christianity C.S. Lewis writes, “If you want to get warm you must stand near the fire: if you want to be wet you must get into the water. If you want joy, power, peace, eternal life, you must get close to, or even into, the thing that has them… they are a great fountain of energy and beauty spurting up at the very centre of reality. If you are close to it, the spray will wet you. If you are not, you will remain dry.”
Pastor Nancy asks us to imagine the joy of God as a water spray park. Are you watching from the sidelines? Or are you ready to run right in?
