God provides springtime to thaw winters’ ravages

March 1, 2014
The Rev. David Almleaf , The Leader Herald

The entire nation has been experiencing an uncomfortable winter and many have grown weary of it by now. As the winter drags on there have been more than a few lively discussions about climate change. Any discussion of climate change always sparks debate as to whether it is real or imagined, natural or caused by humans. I take the weather one day at a time no matter what may have caused it. I look out the window and there it is. I can't do anything about it. I just deal with it. If someday down the road we develop the capability to actually control the climate intentionally, we might find that in trying to change the weather we inadvertently cause some other crisis. We might be better off simply trusting the forces of nature that have been created by God as being the best for us in the long run and be content with the weather of the day. On the other hand, there is another kind of atmosphere that we have almost complete control over. When people are interacting we say there is an emotional atmosphere, or that there is a climate, in the room that can be gauged. The emotional climate can be changed and in some cases, things improve when it is done.
