Tending the Garden by Raymond A. Foss
For God’s love raised Christ
from the depths of death,
for the forgiveness of our sins,
and we must work, not to earn the gifts;
but to show the reverent praise
so richly deserved for such a gift as this
Within creation, we alone, understand
are called to the Father
through the gift of the Son,
out in the fields, in the garden,
spreading the good news
the reconciliation of ourselves
to God, fulfilling the commission
in our own ways, with our own gifts

September 21, 2007
Inspired by the sermon by,
“Regenerating the Human Spirit”,
Rev. Lori Eldredge, August 26, 2007
Wesley United Methodist Church,
Concord, NH
Colossians 1:9-20

Earlier poem on same sermon:
Stewards of the Garden

We are called to maintain,
to protect, to tend
the garden, to weed, to water,
to prune, to care, to plant,
to harvest, to till, to feed
to respect the garden,
to leave the garden
for others to enjoy
