I preached at a local church just over a week ago, and at the conclusion of the service, Julie said something strange to me. You weren't sowing, you were planting! Since then, I have been meditating on the differences and implications. I will be looking for your thoughts and contributions, as well. Please feel free to post a comment or reflexion.
Further to Julie's comment, I had a phone conversation with Tim, and he encouraged me to understand and move into the NEW SEASON that God has for my life and ministry. He also had some interesting insight on the difference between Sowing and Planting.
Later the same week I had some discussions with Paul, and most recently Alain.
There's definitely some digging to be done here. Want to help??
To make matters even more interesting, I have observed an interesting evolution in Winds of Hope. Where we were meeting 4 or 5 together, now I am having numerous one-on-one meetings, building up individuals, seeing the Winds of Hope blow on one relationship at a time.
Further reflexions to follow.
