And so we wait. We wait for the longest night of the year that is coming soon. We wait for Christmas when we celebrate the ultimate gift of earthy new life. We wait for the spring that will come again and bring with it green shoots and abundance of food to feed our neighbors.
In October the session approved the on-going ministry of Give It Away Garden at First Presbyterian Church, making way for continuation of the four beds we already have, more beds if the Mission Outreach Team sees fit to build them, and the building up of our team of gardeners to care for this productive garden on our grounds.
