Growing Deep

Passage: Matthew 13:3-9 NRSV
Service Type:
Old Survivor is the last remaining old-growth coastal redwood of the redwood forest that once populated the Oakland Hills in California. This tree has grown through not only natural obstacles but also generations of deforestation. We live in a world with strong demands on our time, attention, and energy to produce more and more without tending to our deepest needs. What cultural challenges seek to harvest us beyond our capacity? What does Jesus say about growing deep roots to survive and thrive in life’s changing seasons? Join us as we learn from Old Survivor and Jesus’ parable of the sower.
