Last week Sunday at our combined harvest service we received R5000,00. We also collected masses of food, which will be given to the families in the Parish through the Feeding Scheme Ministry. Thank you, St Barnabas Bluff, indeed ministry is not a one-person band, but communal. May Our Lord Jesus Christ Continue to Bless you all. Bishop Dino expressed his thanks on hearing that we are replacing our benches with Chairs and that the benches have been donated by the Family of St Barnabas Bluff to the Parish of Ngcwayi, as part of Loving and Caring Communities. Again, this highlights that ministry is not to be done alone. After last week’s gesture by Chloe Freeman of asking her family to buy fruits instead of a present for her birthday. She opted for fruits to be bought and displayed at the harvest festival and to be shared by the children after the service. We all saw the fruits and shared with our Children. My suggestion as companion on this journey is that we should switch from flowers to fruits and vegetables display so that we can feed our young people after the service with fruits instead of sweets and to use the money for flowers to feed one another. So, let us move from flower display to fruits and vegetables display. Often, we throw away the flowers after a week or so, but the fruits go to many homes in the parish, and that is ministry itself. We are companions on this journey so let us move from flowers to fruits or even vegetables as displays that feed and nourishes the family of St Barnabas Bluff. So, no more flowers but fruits and vegetable displays to feed St Barnabas Bluff.
