Spring showers erupt at a moment’s notice this time of year. It can be unsettling when they bring severe weather.
The love of God is consistent and trustworthy, yet because of that sometimes we take it for granted. In these Sundays after Easter, let us be those who beat a path to worship services to praise God for all we receive through his great love, evidenced through the resurrection! Join us Sunday to offer prayer and praise to God and open our hearts and minds to God’s loving response!
Our sermon series, in this season following Easter, focuses on what the resurrection can mean in our personal lives. The series is entitled, “Tending the New Creation.”
This week our biblical text comes from Mark 4:26-34. Jesus utilizes the image of a mustard seed growing into a large bush or tree as a metaphor for the kingdom of God. What needs to grow larger in your life so that you might be healthier and more vital in faith?
This text gives us some clues about how God grows things in the world and in our lives. Join us for the sermon, “Start Small, Think Big.”
Gardening Mercies, by Laurie Kehler, is the book I am using in our sermon series. If you are a gardener, you will especially love her stories related to growing green things and growing faith.
Even for those without a “green thumb,” it is a lovely book, written is such a warm and personal style that it is enriching to anyone who might want to explore growing in faith. Books are available for purchase at the Information Desk ($15) or to check out in the library, while they last.
