In the Middle of the City… A Tree

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

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.

  1. Hey there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to
    give a quick shout out and tell you I really enjoy reading your blog posts.
    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same subjects?

    Thank you! 0mniartist asmr

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?

    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..

    Any ideas? Appreciate it! 0mniartist asmr

  3. What’s up colleagues, how is all, and what you want to say concerning this piece of writing,
    in my view its really awesome designed for me. 0mniartist asmr

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  5. Right now it looks like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  6. Awesome website you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where
    I can get responses from other experienced individuals that share the same
    interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

  7. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog
    when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  8. Have you ever heard of second life (sl for short). It is essentially a online game where you can do anything you want. SL is literally my second life (pun intended lol). If you want to see more you can see these second life articles and blogs

  9. We absolutely love your blog and find almost all of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for. Would you offer guest writers to write content available for you? I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on most of the subjects you write in relation to here. Again, awesome weblog!|
