WALKING THE PATH

We walk many pathways in our lifetime.  Some of us have walked through mazes.  Most of us have walked paths through the woods.  There is the beauty of walking through a rose garden or a simple flower garden.  Most of us have walked the pathway through our Church Meditation Garden.  The Meditation Garden is beautiful and has been in full bloom this summer.  It is nice to sit on the benches or on the swing and meditate, using the devotional thoughts along the way.  It has been well over a year since we dedicated it during Golden Opportunity Days in 2015.  The pathway is covered with wood chips received free, just for our scooping them up, hauling them to the Church and spreading them, from the wood chip pile the City has down by the City Maintenance yard.  They have been nice but they deteriorate within a year and become part of the soil and you never know when they may have poison ivy chopped up in them.

A couple of our volunteer gardeners were recently discussing how nice it would be if it was paved.  That would make it easy for people using walkers, wheelchairs, and scooters to make their way around it and enjoy it.  That is a wonderful idea.  It would be maintenance free as well.  I brought their thinking to the attention of the Session at our August meeting.  Everyone thought it is a wonderful idea and would like to make it happen.  The only way we see feasible to make it happen is to get estimates on the cost of paving and see if we think it could be accomplished using the approximately $1500.00 in the Garden Fund and get enough individual commitments to add to it to bring it into reality.  So, we are going to get the estimates, then see if we can raise enough additional money to pay for the project.

My challenge to you is to pray and think about what you might be able to commit to make it a reality when we find out what the goal will need to be.  You may want to go into the Garden to pray when considering if you want to see it become reality.

 

God Bless!  Fred
