A moment from our dinner service..
2 Corinthians 3:16-18
And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image..And so we are changed, much like Jesus, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
Take a cup, place some cotton wool in the bottom and sprinkle it with cress seeds. Take home these seeds, place them in a light spot and water them to remind you of the beauty of Lent – A time of planting our hearts in God in special ways. A time of roots going deeper and new growth. Looking after this little garden can remind you to look after your friendship with God this season. Enjoying this garden can remind you to enjoy time with God, doing good things together.
‘Be the gardener of my Soul’
Spirit of the Living God, be the Gardener of my soul. For so long I have been waiting, silent and still – experiencing a winter of the soul. But now, in the strong name of Jesus Christ, I dare to ask:
Clear away the dead growth of the past,
Break up the hard clods of custom and routine,
Stir in the rich compost of vision and challenge,
Bury deep in my soul the implanted Word,
Cultivate and water and tend my heart,
Until new life buds and opens and flowers. Amen.
