John 12.20-33

Some Greeks have asked to speak to Jesus, aware of the buzz surrounding him. Their request is passed through several people before it gets to Jesus; but it does – no one is too much trouble for Jesus. Jesus then speaks about his death, using the image of a seed which must die in order to produce the fruit for which it is designed. He finishes by saying that all will be drawn to him – Greeks included!page1image1945773504 page1image1945774016 page1image1945774304


To make fruit flapjacks, melt together 1⁄2 cup butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 4 tablespoons golden
syrup. Stir in 2 cups rolled oats, 1⁄4 cup chopped dried blackcurrants, 1⁄4 cup sunflower seeds, 1⁄2 cup pumpkin seeds and 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds. Stir well until all combined. Press the mixture into a greased baking tray and bake on 150 C/gas mark 2, for 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool before cutting into pieces.

As you bake, talk or reflect about seeds and how their seeming death in the soil leads to huge multiplication.



Look at a picture of a sunflower. The head of a sunflower is absolutely jam packed with seeds. Each one potentially another plant that can grow until it too has a head full of seeds. Sunflowers can produce up to 1400 seeds per head! Think about how quickly you could multiply sunflowers! Now think about your impact on the world around you. If you were to positively impact two people, and they in turn another two each, how quickly would the world become a more positive place? This week, make it your daily mission to encourage someone in something they are doing. Create or draw a sunflower to represent each person you encouraged.
