You have seen for yourselves what I did to the Egyptians and how i carried you away on eagle's wings and brought you to me.

Reflection on Exodus 19: 2-8aJohn 14: 8-17
by the Rev Tom Harries

How could one include honor or concern for the natural environment in a sermon for today?   The only possibility I see is in the wonderful image of being borne up on Eagle’s wings.
