After seventeen years of faithful service to our parish, our rector is retiring. Today's service celebrated the growth in ministry during his leadership at our church. The music program was highlighted by the youth choir's performance of this little song. I caught the verse during this morning's rehearsal. They all sang beautifully, filling the church with purity of voice. (That's my Jack, front and center.)
I'm so proud of him.
The kingdom of God is like a mustard seed.
For when it is sown in the earth in the spring
It is the least of all seeds in the earth.
But when it is watered
It grows... it grows...
And is greatest of all herbs.
The kingdom of God is like a seed
A little seed
A little mustard seed.
