Report by Missioner Colin Pattenden

CrossTHE Harvest Gathering of the three churches took place at Longley and Lowerhouses Community Church on Sunday October 2nd. Displays for reflection were created around the church based on the Genesis 1 account of creation. 

During the sermon we reflected on how humankind has been poor stewards in many ways with the pollution and destruction of the environment, hence the rubbish set before the cross. During the time of confession, members of the congregation added to the pile, recognising our corporate need of forgiveness for spoiling the planet and also how we each have our own personal 'rubbish' that we need to lay before the cross.

Mike Smith brought a word based on the Parable of the Fig Tree (Luke 13:6-9), using the 3 years mentioned in the story to represent three eras of destruction, but in the end God gives us the opportunity to change our ways and we can respond personally in how we live to make a difference.
