The wind blows wherever it wants
Mister Rogers with Daniel puppet_cropped

The words which jumped out at me this morning as David read John 3:1-21 were these, from verse 8: ‘The wind blows wherever it pleases.’ It reminded me that God gives freedom to his creation to make choices, to respond to local variables. There are what we call ‘the laws of nature’, but within them the whole of the universes is granted freedom of choice. This week I’ve been researching the life of Fred Roger’s, the unique American children’s
