more than enough in a garden

"the lyric of abundance asserts that because the world is held in the hand of the generative, generous god, scarcity is not true...the claim of creation faith is that there is more than enough to share, and where there is sharing there is generativity of more, because as the fruitful instruments of creation notice the shalom of god enacted as sharing, they do in fact produce more."

- walter brueggeman, the covenanted self

truly inspiring reflection about the reality of the world and god's economic laws throughout.  it gives me great expectations for what a community garden can do, both seen and unseen.
