| Dear Rob,
Past adventures and future opportunities!
|Bishop Diane Visits Emmanuel!
of our new suffragan bishops, Diane Jardine Bruce, took Mo Lyn and I
out to lunch this past Wednesday. She was interested in the ministries
that are unfolding at Emmanuel and one of the things we shared was the
wonderful story of the Emmanuel Community Demonstration Garden. Once she
saw the site, she took out her checkbook and wrote a check for a $500.
"Seed" money, she said. (See why we like her? :) She decided to buy a
plot for the diocese which we will tend for her between visits. We can
also be a source of inspiration and information for other parishes in
the diocese who might like to start a community garden. Thanks be to God
for all the work that Bishop Diane is doing in getting to know parishes
at the grass roots level, and her active support in encouraging them!
