After the summer of people coming and going, holidays, and uncertain schedules, we finally returned to worship. Although it felt strange coming back up the hill after so many weeks away, entering the space of worship and exciting greetings of old friends and a few new faces, I sensed familiarity, warmth, and rejoicing in community.The theme of worship through the summer had connected with gardening. From preparing the garden soil, to sowing seeds, to nurturing plants, to the harvest, we journeyed through the metaphor of our lives and spirit.

There’s something about being in God’s creation that seems to stretch time. I feel a sense of abundance and re-connection with the Creator of all. Time taken in rest, away from the people-creations which focus on time, money, production, and consumption, I remember who I am, I re-centre my self and life in Christ, and I re-commit myself to the community of faith which seeks to live in the kingdom of the Creator.
I might just be ready for a new semester.
