It was 5:30 a.m. on a Sunday morning, I got up as I do on every other Sunday morning to spend some quiet time in final preparation for that day’s church services. I noticed that there was a different glow outside the high window in my bedroom, so I went to the window to take a look. When I looked out the window, I saw the yard and street covered in a blanket of beautiful snow. I took a moment to enjoy the beauty of the freshly fallen snow that had left our town looking like a postcard, and then suddenly the wonder and beauty of the snow changed to uncertainty and unease. As the pastor, everyone would be looking to me to make a decision about whether to have church that day. One side of me said, “I can get there, and I should just be there for anyone who wants to show up.” The other side of me said that if I have the services, some people will come, and if even one of them is hurt in a car accident or falls in the parking lot, it wouldn’t be worth it.
