Why Trellis?

Most readers see the bunch of grapes on the masthead of this newsletter and assume it is called Grapevine.
Its proper name is Trellis. (Although it will answer to Grapevine).
I called it Trellis originally because I wanted to provide information that would support the informal grapevine that allows information to flow around World Vision. All organisations have grapevines, rumour mills, gossip shops. World Vision isn't any different.
It is important, though, that the Grapevine passes on accurate information.
But there is another way to think about supporting the Grapevine. For this, read John 15.
Jesus says in verse 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing.”
