... in the inner city

Walking around the drab housing estates of south London, where there doesn't seem to be much hope, I came across this mural.

It struck me as being a wonderful example of how we can find God in our everyday lives. Not only does it brighten its surroundings, it is on the entry gate to a city farm, a place of growth and renewal. It is also a sign of how human creativity can thrive despite an apparent lack of inspiration. The seed of inspiration that God gives us through the Holy Spirit can grow more than we can imagine and impact the lives of others.
