Parable of the sower

#474 This evening I preached on #parableofthesower and questioned whether there is more to the parable than meets the eye. What if it were about #community and the #seeds represented people in the community. Birth or luck may place them in the #margins (seed on the path), #disillussioned (rocky ground), #selfsufficient and #successful (thorny ground) or aware of the #weightofresponsibility (good soil). What does that mean though? Do we all understand one another? Do we listen to one another? Do we know what each other needs? What if Jesus is calling us to do all of these things, to be #goodsoil, to draw into relationship with all people in our society? Would that help us to glimpse the glory of the kingdom?
