Thought for Harvest:

The one who sows wrong thoughts and deeds and prays that God will bless them is in the position of a farmer who, having sown tares, asks God to bring forth a harvest of wheat.

Eco Tip of the week: Have you thought about making your own cleaning products? You can use basic ingredients such as lemon juice, white vinegar and baking soda. To make furniture polish, mix 1 tsp of lemon juice in 1 pint of mineral or vegetable oil (olive oil works well). Perhaps you have a cleaning remedy you can share on the pew sheet?
