Under the back drop of Pikes Peak a house church from inner city Denver traveled down the Interstate for message, mission and music. The wind blew hard at the high point area of Garden of the gods. The spirits were high and the worship flowed like a river that the Denverites could bring back. The subject was creation, the text was Genesis and in the six days between, sun, moon, dark and light; fish, birds earth and sky the masterpiece would come in God's own image. "With all the concentration on being stewards of the earth, it occurred to me on this morning that God's most precious resource are people," the pastor said between the songs. "It is important that one of the things that we must be good stewards of is each other."
The drive around the gardens revealed some prayer requests, some were health issues, others job situations and still other spiritual warfare. The pastor made the connection from creation to the two greatest commandments. "Love the Lord your God with all your heart soul and mind and your neighbor as you would like to be loved." Everything else falls into place, Jesus tells the Pharisee. "The Tree of Life appears in two sections of the Bible, one in the beginning and the other at the end. Book ended with all these quests to know God better. In the beginning it was Adam and Eve's disobedience that separated fellowship with God. In Revelation the Tree of Life is revisited in a scene that shows people who are enjoying true fellowship with God.
As the people from Ancient Paths House Church traveled back to the inner city of Denver, it is a point of reflection. Creation, earth, sky, sin, loss, and gain in a field trip that blends creation with fellowship. "I hope and pray that they felt like God's most precious resource," the pastor said as they drove away.
