A Word From Our Minister

So let us not grow weary in doing what is right,
for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up.
– Galatians 6:9

Dear Friends in Christ,

I planted some seeds and put them in the window when the weather was still cold and miserable. The tiny little seeds seemed so small and insignificant when I buried them in the soil. For a while nothing happened but after time green shoots pushed out of the ground and then gradually those shoots grew taller and leaves appeared. They were slow in developing at first but then as the sun strengthened they shot up and now have brilliant green leaves which eagerly follow the sunlight.

As followers of Jesus, we are called to do things which may seem insignificant- being kind to others, being generous with our gifts, sharing what we believe. Yet in faith we trust that from those small things God can bring about something great for God calls us to plant seeds in our lives through words spoken in love and by actions grounded in grace.

The truth is that sometimes we’ll see the new thing God does through our efforts and other times we’ll not witness the transformation from a simple word or action to a changed life. No matter what we should never be discouraged but rather have faith that God will take our faithful service and witness and create something wonderful for our calling is to plant the seeds which have the potential to take root and blossom for all the world to see.

May you find time to enjoy the summer weather and may you see opportunities to sow seeds of kindness and hope through your lives.

Yours in Christ’s Service,

Rev. Peter
