A Burning Bush

A few days before Remembrance Sunday as, I was walking by the church in beautiful sunlight, I was struck by the sheer beauty of the bush in front of the church – it really looked as if it was on fire!

There was no audible voice but a distinctly awe-inspiring feeling of being on Holy ground.

Jill kindly took a photo of it a few days later, and we thought we would share it with you as its autumn freshness will fade over the next couple of weeks.


I looked up some passages referring to the burning bush in the Bible and found in Acts 7:30 that “After forty years had passed, an angel appeared to Moses in the flames of a burning bush in the desert near Mount Sinai”.  Mark 12:26 says  “Now about the dead rising—have you not read in the Book of Moses, in the account of the burning bush, how God said to him, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob’?” and Luke 20:37 continues this theme with “But in the account of the burning bush, even Moses showed that the dead rise, for he calls the Lord ‘the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’

Thank God for such hope.
