“I am the vine, you are the branches…”

This past spring, a group of pastors gave of their time, planting ivy bushes along a fence line at camp. The plan was that when these bushes are full grown they will help
provide more of a natural looking barrier over the chain link fence which helps from those loose kickballs from intense games of Norski roaming onto the road.  Over the course of the summer these plants have been watered and looked after, and are creeping their way
over, around, and through the fence.

When I see these ivy now growing in full force and the way they are intertwined, I hear the words “Iam the vine, you are the branches…” (John 15:5)  This piece of scripture and the growing ivy are reminders that God’s love is abundant!

It is God who gives life, nourishing and sustaining us and empowering us to be workers in the kingdom.  Where do you see reminders in your everyday life of God’s abundance?  Maybe it’s as simple as ivy growing on a fence.
