We are in the season of Advent – a time of hopeful expectation!
Yet we remain several months away from the end of the global pandemic. Across the board, many churches are closing down and others are hanging on with all of their strength.
Church leaders continue to feel pressure from all sides. And without the old metrics of success, much of our work can feel insignificant and frankly, disappointing.
Fortunately, Jesus spoke about this reality. Repeatedly, he taught that the kingdom of heaven would come in the form of seeds.
Small, hidden, slow, vulnerable seeds.
Today, we explore this theme together, and I offer encouragement for how to participate in the slow and small work of God in our lives.
