Since the begining of my garden obsession I realized how at one with nature you are when you garden.¬† The miracle of food for a season or 2 from a few small seeds is truly amazing.¬† It's proof ¬†to me there must be¬† higher being that controls the miracles of natures flawless cycles amoung other things!¬†
¬†So when I see churches with so much land take it and turn it into a mega church
with rec centers and parking lots, I wonder do they think of nature as part of¬†¬† religion.¬† I wonder how many mega churches out there if any have a community garden.¬†
What a way for members to gain a higher respect for the Creator, while learning a healthier lifestyle.¬†What a way to help¬† out¬†members whom may need¬†food assistance.¬† ¬†
Healthy living is also the "right way" to live, showing respect to the life the Creator blessed you with.¬†
I'm not sure where I'm going with this, I guess¬†I ¬†just wanted to express my disappointment with religion that separates nature from church.¬†
I say all this to say start a garden today!¬† The respect you gain for the earth is something that can't be taught and you can't buy with offering!¬† How we treat the earth and our bodies is as important as how nice and high tech our churches are!
