Do you celebrate this where you live? No matter; if you have your TV on today, someone will tell you all about it. The traditional name of today’s non-holiday celebration is Groundhog Day.
It’s a big media and social event especially in the towns where Punxsutawney Phil (U.S.) and Wiarton Willie (Canada) live. There, the media wait with bated breath to flash the news to us. Otherwise, how will we know whether or not winter will soon end?
If the critter sees his shadow, he is frightened and goes back to sleep. Or is it the other way around? I guess you’ll have to tune in and find out.
Are we as tuned in to what is happening with God, or for that matter, our local church, our Christian friends, and our own spiritual life?
Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. (Colossians 3:15, MSG)
Prayer – Tune us up Father God… and help us keep in tune when we get there. Amen
