Planting the Seedlings of Love, Light and Peace

The ‘Archer Planting’ last Saturday (April 13) provided the wider community of the Archer Mountain Earth Community (AMEC) an opportunity to offer their gift of ‘green fingers’ to plant seedlings of lettuce, silver beet, egg plant, tomatoes of all kinds, snow peas, French beans and leeks.  After a delightful morning tea of coffee and poppy-lemon cake provided by Mary Nelson, the group of 10 headed to the 5 raised beds.  By 12.30pm all the seedlings were in mother earth and today (Monday) they have their heads lifted high to the blue sky.  Thank you to all who found space in their busy lives to help with the planting and with many maintenance jobs that are always in need of attention.


Sunday was the second Agape of the year led by Mike Sherman on ‘The God who is Everywhere’.  Mike began with this beautiful quote: ‘I honour the place in you where everything in the Universe resides.  I honour the place in you of love, of light, of truth, and of peace.  And when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, there is only one of us.’  It is worth pondering!  If we categorise ‘the other’ as separate, not on the ethic of ‘love, of light, of truth and of peace’  we quickly end in a destructive mind-set that gives birth to racism, discrimination, exclusion and hate speech.
