The Gardener-ship of God
We have largely talked about our own gardens today but they don’t exist in isolation. My garden is drawn together with all other gardens under the gardener-ship of God. (John 15:1 Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the true vine and my father is the gardener…”).
Questions/thoughts for reflection.
My garden joins onto other gardens….. Whose? Think as widely as possible.
What are my relationships like with those people? Do any of those relationships need tending (think about mending/strengthening/boundary-setting)?
Could there be things about my garden that affect other people’s garden’s (positively or negatively)?
And vice versa…..?
How do I imagine all these different gardens brought together under God?
In what ways, if any, does this change how I view aspects of my own garden?
