Carr Fire, Cullen Kreider and Gerry Gray in Redding, California offer a unique glimpse into the signs and symbols of Shasta County’s transformational season.
The Summer of 2018 and October – We go from “ashes” and the clearing of the “underbrush and swamp” to the “cultivation of newly cleared land”. Interesting, especially with all the other ongoing prophetic words from respected people who speak of a transformative breakthrough in October and beyond. Here are some encouraging themes for Redding.
Luke 10:19 – “See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will hurt you.”
Items of interest. You just have to wonder sometimes about some of these things. We wonder why on July 2 – 22 days before the devastating, refining, tragic and transformative Carr Fire the beloved Chief of Redding Fire Gerry Gray died at age 54. The head of local firefighting efforts is gone…literally and symbolically. Gray means “of a color intermediate between black and white, as of ashes or an overcast sky. dull and nondescript; without interest or character.”
Carr – “underbrush” – Carr is a common surname in northern England, deriving from the Old Norse kjarr, meaning a swamp.
10/19 – Last Friday we have a new head of Fire Operations in Redding. Post-CarrFire state of the city “Identity Formation” head of Fire Operations Cullen Kreider.
Kreider – the name for someone who lived on “newly cleared land” ‘clearing’, ‘woodland cleared for settlement or cultivation’
Redding is being cleared and refined.
