From small beginnings

Looking again at this photo I took on Saturday, it brought to mind yesterday’s gospel reading, especially:

The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground.  Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens.  The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.

(Mark 4:26-28)

What a great encouragement these verses are to anyone involved in any kind of Christian ministry; it might seem that nothing is happening and yet (if it is of God) then there is much going on behind the scenes that we may be unaware of.  One day the harvest will come…
