Psalm 145
Isaiah 54:1-8
Romans 12:9-21

Missionaries plant seeds – sometimes literally! Aaron Nash Wiggins, Global Ministries’ missionary serving in Suva, Fiji, with the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC), took on the task – really more a labor of love – to plant an urban garden at the secretariat office. “One of God’s greatest gifts to humanity is the earth on which we live. And, with this gift, comes the call of stewardship,” Aaron said. “Because of the PCC’s commitment to stewardship, the secretariat office now has gardens of tomatoes, carrots, beans, cabbage, passion fruit, herbs, root crops and flowers.”  What a great way to blend beauty and practicality – flowers for the soul and fruit and veggies for the body.  Aaron cites the Midrash Tanchuma, Kodashim: “Even if you are old, you must plant. Just as you found trees planted by others, you must plant them for your children.”
