Our Parable Garden Action Day
A good afternoon was had by all at the first meeting of the parable garden at Ilminster on Saturday 11 March at a nearby allotment of land. The land is beautifully set on a hillside with a cross shaped path in the middle.
A small group of friends, children and adults from St Mary’s Church accompanied by spades, forks and trowels, set on the land to dig the soil, after throwing off the weed suppressant material, with thoughts of new life during lent, interspersed with reflections from the bible and calming meditation and prayer.
We shared the parable of the mustard seed with the children while they had a refreshment break and Lydia also took them on a tour of the garden pond area which enabled them to engage in learning about ponds and their wildlife. The next meeting is on Saturday 22 April from 2.00 – 4.00 pm. to plant seedlings…Come and discover God’s love for us in fellowship and discovery of how he speaks to us through creation.
