Seeds of Change

"Very truly I tell you, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." — John 12:24

"As the tiniest of seeds, almost invisible to the eye, holds within itself the power to germinate — becoming a plant providing energy, beauty and food — so, too, do all the acts for social justice, peace, human rights and ecological justice that we have been about these past decades." "Seeds of change can still take root", Nancy Sylvester, Global Sisters Report

What seeds of change and hope have you seen germinate in your life this Lent?


As you eat meals today, say a prayer of gratitude for the seeds that germinated to produce the food that sustains you in your work for social and ecological justice.
