Sunday Sermon: Into each yard some leaves must fall


It’s going to have to be a short Sunday Sermon today — I’m kind of busy this weekend (and most of the last week, and probably most of this coming week as well).

Let me just say this: If you want to argue that nature — including deciduous foliage — is the creation of a benevolent God, maybe don’t try to make that argument in November.

    The funny thing is that it’s been done. Here’s a recent Facebook status from a theist friend:

    (Friend)’s daughter asked him why God made the leaves to turn such pretty colors. I could explain a little of the how scientifically, but as for the why? God is good.


  2. Ignoring divine creation, leaf litter is absolutely necessary to the health of temperate forests and its denizens. It only annoys us because we “have” to rake them when they fall.

      What’s wrong with evergreens, then? Whose bright idea was it to put deciduous trees in the temperate zones?
