What soil do you bring to the liturgy?

July 16, 2024 Fiona Duque

Jesus referred to faith as a seed. A mustard seed. All plants begin as seeds. However, to germinate and grow and develop and be productive, the seed needs to be placed in good soil. In the synoptic Gospels (Matthew 13:3-9, Mark 4:2-9 and Luke 8:4-8) we read Jesus’ Parable of the Sower. I am utilising poetic licence with using this parable where the seed is representing faith and not directly the Kingdom of God, but bear with me. It will all makes sense.

Short course enriches our faith for the long-haul
