GreenTeam Bible Study Reflection - Three

This week we will read an excerpt, Chapter Three, from The Abolition of Man by C. S. Lewis. Here, we see a philosophical approach, solely abstract, to the theological predisposition between man and nature (a.k.a. all of creation).It is engaging for the way it portrays our relationship to God's creation and without even making notice of God. For this reason, it offers a logically sound and philosophical approach to the dilemma of Man's dominance over Nature.  You can read the chapter online, click this link here.

GreenTeam Bible Study Reflection - Two

We would like to focus this week on the passage of Jesus' prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane [Matthew 26:36-46] - it is a most crucial prayer from Christ to Our Father.  In Verse 42, "Again he went away for the second time and prayed, "My Father, if this cannot pass unless I drink it, Your Will be done."" 
As we read and reflect, we recognize Jesus' obedience to God.  He is committed to the purpose and plan of God - "Your Will be done."  How extraordinary, how divine is the Son of God!
How can we be obedient to God?  How can we submit ourselves as servants of the Most High and live in the time we have been given on earth to fulfill His Will for us?  Pertinently, how can we meditate now, in our own garden, and listen to what the Lord has to lay on your heart this morning?

In the Love and Light of Christ,

Nick, A Little Garden Pioneer

Nick came down to our garden to help the GreenTeam on one of our gardening days.  Putting on our "Pioneering Christian Stewardship" tshirt and jumping in (literally, into our load of dirt) - he inspired us with his eager heart in helping us shovel our soil to their respective boxes.  He is a huge part of why we do what we do - to ensure the health of our future, especially in these precious little ones!

GreenTeam Bible Study Reflection - One

If you would like to follow along with our Fall 2011 Club Convocation Series we are currently reading The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 13.

Here are some questions to think about:
What strikes you as pertinent from Jesus' use of agricultural parables? Do you think there is a message about environmental concerns in His teaching that would enhance our faith? Soil, shallow soil, good soil, thorns - What about the imagery of the seed in the various terrain do you think relates to you and your own personal development?
