Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. The colors of the rainbow. At the end of the flood, God promised Noah that he would never leave him, and sent the rainbow as a symbol of hope. It’s so beautiful that we are remembering that promise now, and remembering the nearness of God even when we are apart. During our Easter bike ride, we must have ridden past hundreds of rainbows- we saw them in windows, on yard signs, drawn on sidewalk chalk in the driveway. And even though we weren’t in our beautiful sanctuary full of lilies and tulips, I was still reminded of God’s love and the hope of the resurrection. All this week in our devotions we will be talking about hope. I hope that you can join us in thinking about all the signs of God’s nearness during this time of crisis.
