Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It's autumn – my favorite season of the year! All of nature seems to be in transition. Temperatures are cooling. Leaves on the trees are thinning out allowing new views of the countryside. The leaves that remain display new colors of yellows, golds, reds, and browns, mixed with the greens of the pine trees. Fall flowers are in full bloom. The beauty of God's creation invites you to take an early morning walk to hear the birds sing or a leisurely late afternoon stroll to enjoy the setting sun. Fall is a time to enjoy the great outdoors.

Beyond the surface beauty of the season there are lessons to be learned from the changing seasons.
