Miracles of transformation have been occurring all around us! In late September Jess found three monarch caterpillars in a farmer's field near East Aurora. By late October we were wondering if they would ever emerge from their chrysalis. Eventually all three did and were sent on their way to their wintering grounds in Mexico.

At Grace Community Church the community garden has been transforming the empty lot behind the church. A butterfly garden, garlic bed, and cherry tree were all added this fall. Next to the church the once abandoned house has been removed and the lot is open for the church to transform into a play lot for the neighborhood families.

Then this past weekend was the last of a series of fall tree plantings done by ReTree WNY. A great group of folks, including tons of kids from the block, helped us plant 30 trees in the Grant-Ferry neighborhood.

The miracle of metamorphosis. The simple sedentary transfromed into magestic migrants. The abandoned and neglected transformed into beautiful and productive.

"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind."
- St. Paul's letter to the Romans

May we all experience the tranformation of God's renewing work in our lives and world around us.

  1. It was fun to be around the energy generated by that day. While change takes time, God is always at work. Given time the fingerprints of God become more and more evident in our lives and the fruit His purposes are made visable.
