Since the late 5th century, Christians in Europe have set aside a few days in the late spring to
ask God’s blessing for a fruitful growing season. In some locations, the faithful lead a
procession around the fields. In other places, this ancient tradition is all but forgotten. In
Greenwood, we gather for an outdoor Eucharist with appetizers and beverages!
Sunday, May 6 at 5pm, join us at the home of Bob and Paula Provine, 11178 County Road 94. Bring an appetizer to share and a symbol of how you’ll be working with the earth this summer. It could be seed, a trowel, dirt from the farm, or a catfish! We’ll offer all of those gifts at the altar as we ask God’s blessing on us and on the good earth God has given into our care.
