There was this mulberry tree that used to grow in a Latter Day Saints church parking lot that was right next to my house growing up. Mulberries are pretty bad on the spectrum of berries, but they used to grow wild and free on this tree. The neighbourhood kids would pick as many mulberries as we wanted and we used to stain our fingers. There was enough for anyone that wanted them.
On Sunday we talk about the scripture where Jesus sends out the 12 to continue the ministry Jesus started. Over the years we've made sharing our faith about skilled sales pitches, or presentations and we've often gotten caught up in the pressure to share our faith a certain way. If you're like me it leaves you feeling inadequate and a little scared.
But what if it's all a lot simpler than we were told? Not just simpler, more fun, full of beauty, power and life? What if we are just sharing a gift we've received with someone else? What if we found a mulberry tree and we just need to tell someone there's enough berries on the tree for them too.
None of this made it into the sermon. I actually just thought of the mulberry tree just now. Maybe I should've called this mulberries instead of strawberry.
