Through the Lens of Faith

It always amazes me to consider how our food and some drinks come from the earth. When Mother Nature cooperVines smallerates and the land and weather work as one, beautiful things can happen. How amazing that the earth can create something that sustains us.

I wish this food and drink could sustain everyone in the world. I don’t know what the answer for that is, other than praying that people can learn to share. I’s something we’re taught so early in our lives.

Seeing this picture and place always reminds me of the Scripture passage “I am the vine, you are the branches…” It’s always been one of my favorite passages because it feels like a guarantee that we are never apart from God. We are all connected and no matter how or which way we grow we are connected.

This week, look around in nature and see the ways we are connected. Those vines can nourish us in ways we have never imagined.
