There's Something About Fire Trucks
There is something about 6 California Department of Forest fire-trucks, parked in our church parking lot that grabs my attention. They are just sitting there, with fire-fighters from San Diego manning the trucks in case the forest fire changes directions and heads down the hills into our community. All the weather reports look good and the winds are favorable, but there sit the trucks, ready, alert, poised to go into action in a moment.
This last week with the fire looming has created a climate of alertness in our community, and certainly in me. That is probably not a bad thing, to be alert. I only wish I was as alert to the winds of the Holy Spirit as they blow and fan a different type of flame.
