Curate’s Curios (37/2019) – Sharing what we have
Are we done with Harvest now?
I mean, I like Harvest as much as the next person. Who doesn’t? I love the way that, even though we live in London, in lives that are about as far removed from agriculture as any society has ever been, our church services and school assemblies still reflect the gathering in of crops. I love that we have an entire festival dedicated to thankfulness and generosity, I love the gifts of food being piled up in church and school, carted away gratefully to foodbanks. And since I just generally like Autumn, I also love the colours, the fruit and veg, pumpkins and apples, wheat sheaves, grapes and bread.
If I’m honest, though, I’ve maybe sung Cauliflowers fluffy once too often this year so I’m glad to be moving on from the harvest theme.
