Lunch on the rocks

I brought my lunch to work today, taking a break at noon to explore the river in the church’s backyard. Olmsted church is perched at the intersection of the Rocky River (west branch) and Plum Creek. Descending the stairs into the Cleveland MetroPark along the river, I sat in the sun on the sandstone rocks that line the river’s edge. It was a pleasant 75-degrees. Water swirled around me. A ham and cheese sandwich never tasted better. I snapped pictures to capture the moment and thanked God for the opportunity to be there. Is there a preacher blessed with a more beautiful worship setting anywhere? Right now, I doubt it.

    This is exactly what drew me to OCC in the first place Ron. Quite often when I’m playing piano in worship, I’ll close my eyes and put myself right there at the river. You’ll have to walk the trails sometime.
    Again, beautiful work.
