CANCELLED – Men’s Breakfast in January
January 13 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am
Cancelled due to weather. Rescheduled for Sat. Feb 3rd
The January men’s breakfast will be on Saturday, Jan 13th at 7:30 – 8:30am in the Fellowship Hall. The menu will be the french toast casserole, sausage, fresh fruit, juice and coffee.
Our program is looking at what might seem an odd topic for a parable – manure. It is the Parable of the Barren Fig Tree (Luke 13:6-9)
Then he told this parable: “A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and found none. So he said to the gardener, ‘See here! For three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree, and still I find none. Cut it down! Why should it be wasting the soil?’ He replied, ‘Sir, let it alone for one more year, until I dig around it and put manure on it. If it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.’”
While January is not a gardening month, perhaps the theme of this parable (patience) is appropriate for this time of year. Of note, the NT Greek word for “let it alone” is the same word – “aphemi” – often translated “forgive”.
