Welcome to Christ Church Coronado

A MESSaGE FROM OUR RECTOR 

I love summertime in Coronado! The days are longer, friends visit, the island hums with visitors, many of whom return to worship with us at Christ Church; we enjoy concerts in the park and a spectacular July 4th second to none. Summertime often invites a slower place (depending on your house guest load) and it beckons us to pay attention with gratitude to all that God so generously provides.

The poet Mary Oliver says it best in her poem “The Summer Day”:

Who made the world?

Who made the swan, and the black bear?

Who made the grasshopper?

This grasshopper, I mean-

The one who has flung herself out of the grass,

the one who is eating sugar out of my hand,

who is moving her jaws back and forth instead of up and down-

who is gazing around with her enormous and complicated eyes.

Now she lifts her pale forearms and thoroughly washes her face.

Now she snaps her wings open, and floats away.

I don’t know exactly what a prayer is.

I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down

Into the grass, how to kneel down in the grass,

how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,

which is what I have been doing all day.

Tell me, what else should I have done?

Doesn’t everything die at last, and too soon?

Tell me, what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?

 

                                                                                                       May God’s abundant summertime blessings be with you, - Anne+
