As New Community of Faith continues our work of creating landscaping made up of mostly native and drought tolerate plants, we are also laying down the beginnings of new soil creation through sheet mulching. I believe that every one of us who has been able to take part is finding that the project to be a meaningful way of serving and learning.
Jesus very much understood the value of tending to the good soil and planting there whenever possible, whether it was the good soil of the ground or the fertile ground of the human heart. At NCF we give thanks for the good seeds of community that have been planted in the past, and the preparations that are being made for future harvests.
If you are experiencing a yearning to put down roots in a faith community that is open, affirming, and willing to explore new ways of being and bearing fruit in community and in the world, come visit! The good news is that God has always called God’s people into community. We are not called to go alone, but rather to find our place in the body of Christ today. The good fruits of justice and mercy are sustainable, but only when people work together.
Other seed fell on good soil and bore fruit, in one case a yield of one hundred to one, in another case a yield of sixty to one, and in another case a yield of thirty to one (Matthew 13:8)
