Planting the partner tree :

On October 31st, 2014, the partner tree for the Evangelical Lutheran Congregation in Zetel, Germany was planted in the Bohlenberger Straße cemetery as an expression of the Christian hope that God has a future for humankind and will give new life. Martin Luther described it this way: “The whole world is full of hints of the resurrection. From a tree and hard wood grow beautiful flowers; leaves, twigs and lovely sweet fruit grow from it…. All creatures are a figure and picture of the future resurrection; for in the summertime they become alive again from the dead, growing and greening, which nobody would believe in the wintertime that this could happen, if they had not already experienced and seen it….”
