Image of The meaning of the agrarian parables that Jesus used has become increasingly clear as I watch those fields become green every Spring.

Preparing the ground for the seed involves hard work, cooperative weather and the goodness of the God who created this beautiful and fruitful world.

The Living Word has been sown within us. We must assist in cultivating the ground of our hearts in order to be more fully transformed by ... continue reading
