Trees play a role in the biblical story. We have fig trees and sycamores, the cedars of Lebanon and the shoot that grows out of a stump.

And we also have a grapevine — not exactly a tree, yet referred to as one when Jesus tells his followers, “I am the vine, you are the branches.”

And in the Bible’s final chapter, we hear of a new city: Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb  through the middle of the street of the city. On either side of the river is the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, producing its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

Our longing for that tree gives us hope.
Pastor Mary Beth
