the vine, Jesus Himself, is what will cause us to be fruitful and multiply. As we wait for God to send us a new Tender to the garden of Grace, we will continue to soak (abide) in the Love of Christ and share it as we always have. The Tender may plant the seeds, but God brings forth the produce. As we make plans to do more planting here at Grace, let’s remember that our power comes from abiding, rather than claiming; being, rather than doing. This is the best way we can honor Fr Dave’s legacy. May there be genuine fruit grown in this garden and may we be a blessing to our members and our community for many years to come.
“I am the vine, you are thebranches. IF you abide in me and I in you, you
will bear much fruit. Apart fromme you can do NOTHING.” Jn 15:5
Peace in Christ,
