Bible Herb Garden Renewal

 

Resized_20190707_124547.jpeg

Lois Riggs, a longstanding member of Larison’s Corner’s congregation, started a Herbs of the Bible Garden back in 2015. She planted perennials such as lavender (still there), rosemary, mint (definitely still there) and some annuals. The last planting was in 2017. In 2018, thanks to a generous donation of time and labor from other longstanding members of the congregation, the Bond family, all the overgrown bushes and other plantings were dug up and the area was landscaped beautifully.

Despite this welcome interruption, Lois has faithfully weeded the area. The dill, coriander and chamomile have grown back all by themselves. As you can see from the photograph, the dill is prodigious! Meanwhile, curiously, those herbs she planted in the garden at her own house have died. She cites the miraculous rebirth of the herbs at the church as a fine example of the renaissance of Larison’s during this time when so much is uncertain in the world. Indeed, it is a time of physical and spiritual rebirth for the church, thanks in part to a generous grant from a foundation. Larison’s Corner will soon be sporting new Hardie Plank siding and all new 12 over 12 Marvin windows throughout the sanctuary, as well as two magnificent new arched windows in the front of the church. These two last additions will restore the church as one might have seen it appear in the 1940s.

Luke 17:6 New King James Version (NKJV)

So the Lord said, “If you have faith as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the roots and be planted in the sea,’ and it would obey you.
