Recently we looked at the parable of the mustard seed in our Urban Lab, a learning community of young urban practitioners working with us this summers.
We discovered a cool application of this passage. The parable is about the Kingdom of Heaven... God’s space, which is like a mustard seed being sown and growing into a small ecosystem for birds to take refuge.
Birds come from where? The heavens, God’s space. The seed is sown where? On earth, our space.
God’s kingdom or reign then is equated to our work sowing and cultivating spaces in which things from God’s Kingdom can come and make their home. We give refuge to God’s Kingdom on earth.
Pretty awesome. Christian Direction is all about nurturing urban mission. Would you like to know more? Reach out to us today!
