Thoughts on winter

Windblown has a brief meditation on winter over at The Ooze:

We have used technology not just to insulate ourselves from the physical extremes of winter, but to erase the idea from our culture. The meaning of winter, a season in which life is sustained by the stored harvest of the past, of an uncertain future, of waiting unproductively for a new season, no longer resonates in our lives. Instead we have ever briefer production cycles, narrowing margins, increased competition, and the constant need to get more out of less.

As preachers, do we give in to the temptation to follow the rhythms of commerce, or do we open ourselves to the flow of seasons as God made them? Please read the article.
