Anyone living in Western Michigan knows that when a lake effect is in the forecast, it’s time to pay attention to what’s going on. So what does a weather pattern have to do with a church? We’re glad you asked!
The definition of “lake effect” is a meteorological phenomenon in which warm, moist air rising from a body of water hits cold, dry air overhead. The result is a disturbance in the atmosphere which produce heavy storm clouds that then move over the land dump huge amounts of precipitation.
A lake effect changes the atmosphere. And we want to see the atmosphere of Grand Rapids changed!
“My word is like the snow and the rain that come down from the sky to water the earth. They make the crops grow and provide seed for planting and food to eat. So also will be the word that I speak—it will not fail to do what I plan for it” (Isaiah 55:10-11).
