Week 2


The Church from Planting to Harvest

And that sown upon the good earth is he who hears the Word, and understands, who also bears fruit, and does, indeed some a hundred, and some sixty, and some thirty. (Matthew 13:23)


One use of parables is to provide an earthly image of a spiritual concept. The parables for this week focus on the church growing in each of us like seed growing up to be harvested.

The spiritual harvest, the church, will never cease.

AC 932. There will be no such thing as a failure of the church to come forth somewhere on the earth, which is here signified by there being seed-time and harvest all the days of the earth.... Seedtime and harvest, or the church, will always come into existence.
