Sermon 25 June 2017  (Corpus Christi)

A new plant in the garden of the Church by Fr. Dana

  • Fundamental principles of gardening
  • The Church is a garden established by God
  • Man’s tending of it has failed
  • God sovereignly created a new hybrid plant in the garden
  • It’s all about the heart: behaviour flows from the heart
  • The Church is made up of families and individuals, both of which are also gardens which must be tended
  • Today we celebrate God’s intervention in the garden: the ICCEC
