One said yes to staying engaged.
A couple said yes to remaining present. Others, grappling with the fall out which comes from conflicting approaches said yes to negotiation and peace-making. Another, shy and retiring said yes to stepping up into supporting leadership.
A woman said yes to the whisper of God in her ear on a commitment to care –
All not without struggle and not without prayer.
Unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground…
As shoots begin to push through, other shoots dare to follow.
Plans for meeting monthly to share lunch together are mooted
and community starts to develop.
Resurrection hope comes to this inner city church.
