Lord of our Harvest

9 months ago

This week Revd Steph Warrell, associate minister at Telford Minster, reflects on the theme of harvest – and how for the Christian it is not just an annual agricultural event, but a daily experience of the goodness of God. Reflecting on Matthew 9:35-38, Steph considers God’s provision for us, and his blessing for others. And so while in many churches we celebrate harvest once each year, we can experience the goodness of harvest every day in our walk with God.

35 Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38 Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” — Matthew 9:35-38

 

“Harvest isn’t something we experience once a year, but something we experience on a daily basis”

 

"When we put God in his rightful place, we recognise him as the lord of our harvest.. he is the one who supplies what we need."

 Testimonial

"It was very helpful to commit regular time to focus on the characters and events of Holy week. 
The online nature of the sessions and the possibility of catch up made it practical to do this. I was not able to attend all the sessions live but watched those I missed on YouTube. I found the focus on individual characters thought provoking, particularly becoming more aware of my own weakness and need for God’s grace."
