Planting native trees

We inducted a developmentpastor, Jason King, on Sunday. We then gave the new Opawa concrete slab and brick barbeque a test run in its role as community builder in our midst. An excellent, excellent day.

The new development pastor, as part of the induction, gave the church a tree, a New Zealand native, which he then planted in the church garden beside the barbeque.

A symbol
… of the desire to be planted native with us
… of the need to be watered and tendered, especially in the transplant stage
… of the desire to provide shelter and shade in response to being cared for

I thought it a superb symbol of pastor-in-community.
