This past week the RFIS Middle School students and staff learned about being plants at our retreat.
The theme verse was
A planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor. from Isaiah 61:3
We learned about
ROOTS = FAITH
We need our faith to well grounded in who God is and to learn to use the soil of life we have given.
STEM = HOPE
Just as stems push up and grow towards the life, we need to find our hope in the Lord and grow upward
LEAVES = GRACE
Just as a leaves are extended to get the sun to provide nourishment for the whole plant so we can extend grace to those around us and allow them to grow in their faith.
FRUIT = LOVE
It was a great week!
