As discussed earlier, we want to add a new crop this year--enriched prayer lives.
To that end, we now have a prayer path in the garden. It is a set of 12 stations within the garden that highlight prayer topics related to the theme of fruitfulness. Each station identifies a number of scripture passages addressing the topic, to help prompt prayers. The topics are:
God's desire that we each be fruitful
God as the source of fruitfulness
How to connect to God's fruitfulness
The role of patience in fruitfulness
How being compacted--rigid--hinders our fruitfulness
How distractions hinder our fruitfulness
What fruitfulness can look like
Feeding the hungry as a way to bear fruit & ways to do that
Clothing the naked as a way to bear fruit & ways to do that
Welcoming strangers as a way to bear fruit & ways to do that
Ministering to the sick and incarcerated as a way to bear fruit & ways to to that
Praying for those fed by the garden
The stations are arranged in the pattern of a cross, with the black squares showing where the stations are:
Bibles are in the bin under the bench at the top of the garden (the east side, by the hill).
Come on in, God is eager to talk with you.
