5 Church Growth Lessons from Your Garden

“I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow.” — Paul, I Cor 3:6

Our garden plot.

Chuck Warnock@ deals with Church growth. He notes:
  1. Preparing takes work and time.
  2. We can’t grow bananas.
  3. Some plants need special help, others don’t.
  4. Harvest will not come quickly.
  5. We won’t be able to eat it all at once.

In his conclusion:"Jesus used a lot of agricultural analogies to illustrate the kingdom of God. Plant a garden yourself and you’ll have a new appreciation for their meaning. But in the end, God makes both church and garden grow".
