The third of our 6-week sermon series on nature allows us an opportunity to
consider the importance of trees in Scripture.

As you prepare for worship, slowly and prayerfully read Psalm 1 and then consider the following:
- Who are "like trees" in this text?
- Where are they planted?
- What is their function?
Now turn to Luke 13:6-9:
- Read through the passage once.
- While imagining you are the tree in the story, read it again.
- Finally, meditate upon this question: Today, if Jesus came digging around your "soil," what evidence of fruit-bearing would he find?
I pray you are having a wonderful week, keeping dry when the rains pour, and enjoying the sun when it shines!
