Seek the Gardener

February 27, 2016

  Has the promise of spring temperatures made you eager to do some outside yard work?  Have you been pouring over seed catalogs or lingering near the flower display at Kroger's?  If so, you might like this parable that Jesus tells about the patient gardener.  This patient man has waited 3 years for a fig tree to produce some figs.  The owner is anxious to put a new tree in this spot, but the gardener has hopes that maybe next year this tree will produce fruit. 
   Gospel reading:  Luke 13:6-9
