July 22 – The Blackpoll Warbler

“Astounding!” that’s how York University professor Bridget Stutchbury described a tiny bird, the Blackpoll Warbler. Recent studies have proven that the 12 gram bird is capable of completing a non-stop migration over open water for a distance of 2700 kilometers. “We were totally amazed when we found out,” said Ryan Norris, a biologist at the University of Guelph. Job exclaimed, “How great is God? Beyond our understanding.” But we don’t have to understand it to embrace our Creator’s love and kindness. Paul described this amazing power exemplified in the gospel, calling it “the power of God to salvation, to everyone who believes…” Later He explained why and how this is possible with the words, “…God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. No wonder millions sing, “How Great Thou Art”
