We had lots of people come up to be a part of the new community garden by helping us build a shed out at the garden for the 2013 Weekend of Service. We were blessed with a perfect day and plenty of flexible, construction-savvy volunteers. As I told everyone during the morning’s briefing, this shed is the start of something big at Grace. We will look back on October 13th as a turning point in our efforts to connect our people with where their food comes from. I can’t wait to see what God has in store for next year’s garden!

I apologize for my absence here – it has been a crazy and exciting few weeks. Last week, our creation care ministry was approved as a Partner of Grace Church, which is a tremendous vote of confidence in our new ministry and opens many, many doors for us going forward. Then last weekend was our Weekend of Service, in which we had over 400 people participating in caring for creation around central Indiana. Over the weekend and in the days since, I have felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude for what God is doing at Grace and beyond when it comes to His command to us to care for His creation. I thought this poem of Wendell’s was appropriate:

Learn by little the desire for all things
which perhaps is not desire at all
but undying love which perhaps
is not love at all but gratitude
for the being of all things which
perhaps is not gratitude at all
but the maker’s joy in what is made,
the joy in which we come to rest.
Wendell Berry, Leavings
