|Our sad sandbox|
I looked at the sandbox with new eyes and decided we were going to make our sandbox into our new garden! My daughter has been very into plants since they grew seeds in her classroom this spring. My mother-in-law loved the idea so we made the plan of what we wanted to grow and got busy this morning.
|A cart full of new life!|
So what is your sandbox? What is the sacred space in your church that no one is using but everyone is afraid to change because it was given in memory of somewhere or everyone knows it by a special name and cherishes the memories. It is Easter. We celebrate it for 50 days in The Episcopal Church but resurrection can happen anytime and anywhere.
|Can't wait to watch it grow!|
So think outside the sandbox (which my daughter has renamed the growbox, how cute is that?):
- Can your library get some comfy chairs and floor space and become a mothers morning out room? And they might realize that there are kids books in there that they can borrow.
- Can the bride's room become a space you open to the neighborhood as a job center to get resume help or computers for them to apply for jobs?
- Can the acres of land behind your church become a garden to grow food for the local food pantry or space for bees?
What are some of the spaces in your life or church that can be repurposed?
