Jesus tells us to '... consider the ravens ...'
A common and frequently encountered bird in our area is the raven. Because of this, a phrase caught my eye as I was reading in the Gospel of Luke. In Luke 12:24 (RSV), Jesus tells us to "... consider the ravens ...." The suggestion led to curiosity. Can this bird - often considered a nuisance - teach us anything? Curiosity led to research and research to reflection.
