Christ Church Emerging

Christ Presbyterian Church GreenFaith Mission Statement • Out of gratitude to our Loving Creator, who made this garden planet our home and entrusts it to our care, we commit to “demonstrate responsible stewardship honoring God’s earth, its resources, people and all creatures.” • As disciples of Jesus Christ, we “welcome the joy and accept the work” of supporting our neighbors to care for this good earth and its people by our own example at church, at home, at work and at play. • Confident in the power of the Spirit of Life, we hold firm the hope that God will use us as human co-creators to sustain all creatures.

    I couldn't add to my post, and I wanted to say that I watched this cute squirrel dig a hole, I guess to bury an acorn. The other photo is looking out our church window, Christ Presbyterian Church in Martinsville, onto our little garden. Thanks to warm weather, it is still blooming.
