A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of standing with Peter Rothe and a class of 4th graders at the Vic and Bonnie Christensen Science Center while Peter talked about community. Specifically he was talking about the community beneath our feet, as in the soil. The soil, like much of our world is teeming with life, the life of microbes. Microbes play an important role in the life of our world from aiding decomposition, to leavening bread. They are a part of what we eat and part of what makes nutrient rich soil to support plants of all kinds. It is a mindset shift to think of the invisible microbes around us as community, and it opens us up to the possibility to see sacred life and activity in places we wouldn't normally. Friday, April 22nd is Earth Day and The Garden Church will mark the day with an Interfaith Worship Service on Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 4pm. Our theme is soil. Together we will explore the Spiritual and and religious themes of soil. Feed and be Fed is also marking Earth Day with a Open Garden Time including crafts and activities for children and Garden tours on Friday from 10:30am-1pm. Then on Saturday Feed and be Fed is hosting a free movie night at 7:30pm in the Garden. We are showing a limited release premiere film called The Revolution Generation.
