I’ve been absent from here for some time. As you can surmise from scrolling through the past few post, the Christ Church Garden had gone under via backhoe and we weren’t sure what to do next.
I think the clear way for Christ Church to garden for God for now is to volunteer with Mobile Loaves and Fishes. Check them out and get involved! I hope to be more involved with them again this fall, and when I am, I’ll promote and post about it here.
We will build a garden again, when we have land, and I have no doubt that it will be awesome. But until then do something to serve the Lord, even if it is not gardening. Lay it on ‘em, James -
Dear friends, do you think you’ll get anywhere in this if you learn all the right words but never do anything? Does merely talking about faith indicate that a person really has it? For instance, you come upon an old friend dressed in rags and half-starved and say, “Good morning, friend! Be clothed in Christ! Be filled with the Holy Spirit!” and walk off without providing so much as a coat or a cup of soup—where does that get you? Isn’t it obvious that God-talk without God-acts is outrageous nonsense?
18 I can already hear one of you agreeing by saying, “Sounds good. You take care of the faith department, I’ll handle the works department.”
Not so fast. You can no more show me your works apart from your faith than I can show you my faith apart from my works. Faith and works, works and faith, fit together hand in glove.
