May/June Greetings from the Great Lakes!

Throughout April the days grew increasingly longer, automatically shrinking the hours of darkness.  The sunlight also grew more intense, thereby warming the soil, coaxing dormant plants back to life and seeds to sprout.

In the month of May the upperGreat Lakesregion witnessed an explosion of green!  Grass seemed to leap up out of the ground.  Bare brown branches were first becoming a lush green canopy.  Dry leaves on the forest floor gave way to green ferns and a myriad of colorful flowers.  Such is the power of sunlight to transform the world.

This month we explore the fascinating subject of “the Bible as light.”
