The Planting of the Lord

Jeff Chu reflects on God’s grace and how our gratitude for that grace is the driving force for whatever work we do in the world [Isaiah 61].

Reflection

  1. Where do you see evidence of God’s grace in your life?
  2. How can you cultivate a discipline of holy gratitude?

Practice

  1. Spend time in the presence of oak trees.  Reflect on God’s craftsmanship and grace that allows oaks to grow.  Reflect on how oaks can survive in isolation, but they thrive in community and how that informs our invitation to live a life of righteousness and justice together in community.
