Autumn: what a wonderful time of the year! This is the season when the oppressive heat dissipates, crisp breezes blow, cool weather crops are planted, and leaves change color. The changing colors of the leaves signal the change of seasons while adding beauty and richness to our environment. Although we can see the brilliant colored leaves at the end of each branch, there is much preparation work taking place within the tree that we do not see. This preparation enables a tree to not only survive winter, but also to thrive when a new round of growth emerges again next spring.
For Everything There is a SeasonChurches go through seasonal changes too. While not as predictable as the spring, summer, autumn, and winter cycle of nature, churches and ministries have their own life cycle. Covenant Church is in the midst multiple seasonal cycles.
