Listen to the sermon.
Seasons. That’s what’s on my mind this week. It could be that 2 weeks ago it was snowing, and this week it is summer-hot and humid. Seasons are about weather, about repeating cycles of life and death and rebirth. We talk about seasons of the church year, cycles of a congregation, seasons of our lives. Seasons have highs and lows, patterns that are predictable but not absolute.
Some seasons we see extreme growth and fruitfulness – like summer. When the seeds we have planted, or God has planted in our lives, seem to take nourishment from the very air, and they grow into big, beautiful plants that bear luscious fruit – so much luscious fruit that we can share our bounty again and again.
