God’s Garden at TCC

Sunday October 29 2006 we planted a garden for God in front of our church.  This garden will be a metaphor for our church.  We will plant it and cultivate it with prayerful care.  We will have to be patient, though, to see the fruits of our labor.  The bulbs need to spend time getting acclimated to their new homes.  With no visible signs of growth immediately springing forth, we may become impatient and think that nothing is going to happen.  Sometimes our lives are like that, and we feel like God has abandoned us.  But God is always with us, enveloping us with the love of Christ, the same way as the right soil is enveloping and protecting the bulbs throughout the winter.  Just as we have faith that the bulbs will start growing in the spring, we have faith in Christ that will bring us into a right relationship with God.

This garden will be unique, a one of a kind garden unlike any others.  This will be OUR garden.  How will it reflect our church?  Will we each be able to identify ourselves in this garden?  Time will tell.  Next spring, we will watch our garden grow.  We will nurture it and give it special care the same way that God cares for us.

The fall and winter will be a time of waiting like Advent. This will be a time where we can rest and reflect upon our church. God created our church for a purpose. What is our purpose now? What is God’s call for us? What do you sense God wants?
