http://chuckwarnockblog.wordpress.com deals with Church growth. He notes:
- Preparing takes work and time.
- We can’t grow bananas.
- Some plants need special help, others don’t.
- Harvest will not come quickly.
- 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".
