Seeds of stewardship

Mothering Sunday is a time when we give thanks for our mums, but more importantly it is a celebration of our mother the Church.

As Mothering Sunday gifts this year we purchased little balls of wildflower seeds to give to members of the congregation for them to sow. We had no idea at the time that we would be unable to hold a service here that day.

Instead, we posted them together with a little prayer card, to as many members of our electoral roll as we could, especially to those whom we know are finding life particularly difficult at present.

Our sincere apologies if you did not receive one: unfortunately, there were not quite enough to go round, because we hadn't realised that we would need quite so many. Please know that we remembered you all that day, even if you didn't hear from us directly.

If you did receive a seed bomb, now is still a great time to sow them. Just scatter them in your garden or on some waste ground and leave the rest to nature. They contain pollinator friendly, wildflower seeds to support our dwindling insect population, improve our environment, and help fulfil our duty as stewards of God's creation.

When they come up, do please post photographs of the results on social media - don't forget to tag us @stbrideschurch (or email them to the office stb@stbrides.com).

But as for the seeds in the good soil, these are the ones who,
when they hear the word,
hold it fast in an honest and good heart,
and bear fruit with patient endurance. - Luke 8: 15
