Harvest at King’s Court – Friday 14 October 2016

Led by Rev. Suzanne Nockels

Residents of King’s Court were joined by members from Tapton for a Harvest Festival.

Suzanne asked for different types of apples, pears, oranges and bananas. Highlighting the fact that all bananas are derived from the Cavendish banana which is now blighted and has not got the resilience of say the varied variety of apples available. Are we like a banana or one of the other fruits? Do we yearn for everything to be the same or do we encourage variety in our life.

Then we heard in Samuel about King David craving fresh spring water. His men set out to find some. They struggled against a number of adversaries but managed to retrieve some spring water for the King. The King rather than drinking the water offered it to God. When did we last crave God?? Psalm 42 uses the symbolic craving of the deer for water and we closed with the hymn ‘As the Deer pants for the water’. An excellent service.
