Fireworks.  There’s nothing quite like them.  I’m happy to go out of my way for a chance to see them. 

Where I live, there are 2 fireworks displays on the 4th.  At the same time.  So every year I try to find a place where I can see them both.  I hate to miss any of it. 

Fireworks are amazing.  They always get our attention.  But that’s pretty much it.  When they’re over, they’re done.    

Which is very different from how things work when God gets our attention.  It’s not just the fireworks.  There’s a lot more going on.  Like we see in Sunday’s first reading (Exodus). 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
