Sunday 14th June 2015 – Pentecost 3B (2)

In the sowing and the growing,

Great Gardener,

You are thorough in the task.

You plant not just the soil

that others would consider fertile.

Instead You are prepared to do the hard work,

and tackle the challenging ground,

where stones are to be removed

and weeds pulled.

Then in those places

the unexpected fruit spills forth

declaring the goodness of the kingdom of heaven.

 

The shoots of our lives

are not always tender,

and instead

we use our growing pains

as an excuse

to hurt and harm those around us.

 

In our worship of You this day,

in the lives we will lead from this time,

may we find you tending to the burrs and spurs

of who we are,

until we become the beautiful creation

You invite us to be in Christ’s name.

Amen.
