After a number of years of faithfully and expertly nurturing our church gardens, David Knighton was recognized after worship recently for his “green thumb” ministry. The plaque inscribed “Nurtured by David” was placed in the circular garden in front of the church. A plethora of flowers now grow in this circle where formerly the roots of a large tree prevented anything else from growing. Gardens line the front pathway to the church and a dogwood tree blooms prolifically in the front lawn. There, and in the side and meditation gardens, David manages to have a succession of flowers and plants with interesting leaves… from spring through autumn.
Also after worship, Deacon Hamilton Topping burned the palms from Palm Sunday which will become the ashes for Ash Wednesday next year.
