In the Middle of the City… A Tree

Passage: Psalm 78 & Rev. 22 (Selected Verses)

Bible Text: Psalm 78 & Rev. 22 (Selected Verses)

“In the middle of the city, stands a tree, and it’s leaves are for the healing of the nations.”

When I first came to Manor Road, our congregational logo was a tree… It’s image was used on the order of service, on stationary and on other printed documents.  Beneath the tree on the logo, were words that read:  “In the middle of the city….a tree… and its leaves are for healing.”This was a church that declared itself first and foremost as a place for healing.  From the first time I saw that logo the image and the words touched me deeply.  Perhaps because I was so deeply wounded, and so much in need of healing at the time.

And it was here that I began to heal as I experienced and witnessed again and again and again the kindness of the people who gather here.  Over time, as again and again, I experienced and witnessed the dedicated kindness of so many of our members, the words rang true.  They still do.
