Sunday 5/1 – Plant Seeds or Get Weeds

Winter is over, spring has sprung and hopefully this current swampy-mud season will lead to a quick green up. Jesus taught about seeds and how they grow and then are harvested – it’s interesting to think about. An old comedian Fred Allen used to say, “Most of us spend the first six days of each week sowing wild oats; then we go to church on Sunday and pray for a crop failure.”  What seeds are you planting in your life and what do you expect it to yield? If you don’t plant anything in the open areas of your life you can be sure some kind of weed will gladly take up that empty space. Come to Rockwell Church to be encouraged to plant seeds that lead to a delightful harvest. It’s communion Sunday, a great time to reflect on your life purpose, plans and priorities. We meet at 10:15am Sundays at 93 Midway Drive in Virginia, MN. We live-stream the worship hour, but in-person is always better than video.
