At church on Sunday 4th October we had a short Harvest celebration. Our main reading was from Philippians ch 3. Paul says the only thing that matters to him is his relationship with Christ. His goal in life was to grow ever closer to Christ. We thought about the idea of ‘being ourselves’ because it seems Paul was saying that it’s better to just be ourselves, to find our individual paths in life, in close relationship with Christ. In a way, that links to harvest because everything in our display started off on its own path, maybe to become a conker or a berry or a flower. And that leads to an abundant natural harvest.
At our harvest celebration a sum of £130 was collected and sent as a donation to the charity WaterAid.
