Sausage Leftovers: The Northern Edition
Okay so I found some links of interest to share… This was almost the Canadian edition, but the Mustard Seed House is in the USA… barely.
Spirituality of Gardening Workshop– If you live in the Seattle area the Mustard Seed House is hosting two workshops April 25 and May 30 on the Spirituality of Gardening. The revolution starts at home. Lunch and a garden manual are included. Here’s the blurb:
Do you struggle to connect to the story of God through morning devotions and Sunday worship? I believe one reason people are moving away from Christianity at time warp speed is because we have divorced our faith from the glory of God revealed through the natural world. Nothing makes me more aware of this than working in the garden. I read about the death and resurrection of Christ in the Bible, but I experience it every time I plant a seed and watch it burst into life.I read about the faithfulness of God to Israel but I experience it every time I watch the rain fall and nourish the seeds I have planted. I read about the miracle of the fish and the loaves but I experience a miracle every time I am overwhelmed by the generosity of God’s harvest.
In this workshop, we will discuss the wonderful ways that God is revealed through the rhythms of planting, growing, and harvesting in the garden. There will be spiritual insights and practical suggestions for backyard gardening in the Northwest. Come prepared to get your hands (and your clothes) dirty!
Each participant will receive a copy of The Garden Year, a resource to help plan, cultivate, and harvest a garden throughout the year.
