“Since you have received Christ Jesus, live your whole life in our Saviour. Send your roots deep and grow strong in Christ – firmly established in the faith you’ve been taught, and full of Thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7

Scientists have recently recognized that trees are “social creatures”, connected to each other by underground fungi. On a very basic level, trees share information and resources, and help each other defend against diseases and predation. This communication helps the entire forest. So what about us? We too were created to be in a community, to be connected. But to draw closer to God and one another, we need to be open to others, to participate in the communication network, and to do everything with kindness and in love. In this way, we too will be healthy, and be able to fully experience our place in God’s creation.
