sowing in concrete

I spent an excellent day last week with estate church colleagues from Southwark Diocese at an event with the brilliant title Sowing in Concrete.

It inspired me to write a parable on the train journey there:

 

The kingdom of God

is like the gardener

who sowed in concrete

 

what looks to be

the least promising

of all the soils

 

yet when the seed grows

it is the strongest

off all the plants

and becomes a tree

where all the people shelter.
