He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart…Isaiah 40:11
Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
“May you always walk in sunshine. May you never want for more. May Irish angels rest their wings right beside your door.” – Irish blessing
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I love a red church door.
In the more traditional religious denominations, a red church door was considered a symbol of entering into worship, into the presence of God, through the blood of Christ, the sacrificial lamb of God.
The church has historically been a place of refuge from the evils of the world both real and perceived. It remains so today.
I urge you to find your red doors. The church is not perfect but it is a place of peace and a refuge from the highs and lows of life. It is a place to share joy, peace and love. It is a place of reflection.
Most of all, through those red doors you will find God waiting to wrap you in love and spread His never-ending grace upon your weary soul.
