How big can a small seed grow?
In Matthew 13, Jesus tells a short parable about a mustard seed, the smallest of seeds, which grows into a large bush or tree, big enough for birds to nest in its branches.
From the tiniest of seeds grows something remarkable.
Could the same be true with the small seeds we sow? What is the power of a quick hug, or a kind word, or a gentle and forgiving spirit? In other words, how big can a small seed grow?
Hope you'll take a listen to this week's sermon: "Small Seeds"

Each of the readings were selected and adapted to dramatic interpretation by the community members. Photographs of their interpretations were made, and these were then transcribed to paintings.")
