From my lounge window, I can see fields of ripening wheat stretching out to the horizon.  I love watching the fields change colour over the course of the year –the richness of coffee brown soil, the fresh dewiness of the first green shoots, and the fruitfulness of ripe golden wheat. Soon enough the fields will be ploughed furrows again and the year goes on.

I have been in the Curate training post in this area since the end of Harvest last year and it has been a really fruitful year - much like the annual Harvest we hope for. And I am very grateful to those of you that bring in the Harvest – I know my daily bread doesn’t just appear on the supermarket shelf as if by magic!

Over this year I have learned more of the faithfulness of God at work in my life, and the Harvest I work for, to produce good things and I trust God to be at work in the lives of others too as I share God’s love and joy and peace.

I look forward to joining with you at Harvest meals which the churches will be hosting in the next couple of months. 

Rev’d Cathy Brazier
