From Pastor Mary Beth: Nurturing Faith - Going Deep

Our first year of gardening at Juliana Place has been an experiment.  Where is the best sun?  The best soil?  It turns out that the okra, planted by the fence, is going to be the best crop.  In this season of record heat and sporadic rain, I think I know why.  It’s the roots.  They are sturdy, deep and have multiple shoots going down.

 Our spiritual roots can also go deep, and when they do, we are healthy, fruitful and strong.  All of the opportunities being planned for fall here at Fairlington UMC are like the soil being prepared. Look at this wonderful list!   Think about how you would like to be planted in this soil. We will be nurtured together.
