Tending the garden turns into mission
...This is smaller than all other seeds, but when it is full grown, it is larger than the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and nest in its branches. - Matthew 13:32
In the small Southern town of Macon, Georgia, God’s abundance has shown up in a big way. An empty lot behind an abandoned liquor store has become a place bounty.
Mulberry Street United Methodist Church, a large historic church in downtown, has created a place of communion, beauty and sanctuary. Jack Head, a retired from the insurance industry, has led a small and enthusiastic band of volunteers to create a community garden that has led to more than just a garden but a way to serve the under-served in their community.
