Colorado and Utah- Colorado Rainbow

Rainbows mean many things to many people.  For some it’s gay pride, for some it’s the promise that God gave Noah in Genesis.  For people in the west it’s a sign that it’s rained.  Now, obviously, it’s a sign for everyone that it’s rained, but if you live in Buffalo or Seattle, or Chicago rain isn’t nearly as big a deal as it is in much of the American West.  This photo was taken outside the town of Dinosaur Colorado which averages about 14.6 inches of precipitation a year(rain plus snow melt)

Think about that for a bit as you go about your evening tonight, as you head to Midnight Mass, or whatever sort of service you may or may not go to. The world that Noah and Jesus knew was an arid one as well, and when a well has to be dug by hand the phrase “water of life” has an even more profound meaning.

Starting tomorrow we’ll be having short little blogs for a week to get us all thinking about just what the phrase Prince of Peace really means in the long term.  Merry Christmas.
