Despite the sunny days at the tail end of August, you can tell that Autumn is just a step away. The Sycamore tree opposite my window is full of keys waiting to spiral down and find somewhere to grow. One or two of its neighbouring trees have leaves beginning to change colour and it won't be long before the autumn palate is in full use. At the moment the garden at the Church of the Good Shepherd, is still a riot of colour. The roses are having one last explosion of bloom and the red fuchsia is afire alongside the pavement. It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful God's creation is and how varied it is in its splendour. These last few days of summer are an opportunity for us to stop and wonder at Creation and to consider that part we have in it and what we may need to be doing to ensure that future generations get to enjoy what we take for granted.
