5th Saturday of Lent

The prophet Ezekiel comforts the Israelites with God’s promise of becoming a united nation and dwelling peacefully in the Promised Land. Being an old farm girl, the image of tending a piece of land surrounded by friends is a heart-warming image. Where I live now, my husband and I tend a row in a community garden. This garden brings together a disparate group of people with a common goal of growing food and it builds community. We chat, pull weeds, share produce, and get to know each other. It is a small slice of heaven here on earth. If you can’t cultivate land, cultivate people so Ezekiel’s prophecy comes true.
