July 16th 2017 – Sunday 15A

AN EAR TO THE GROUND?
Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
A sower went out
casting broadly, without thought
of where seed landed.

It’s partly about
wildly profligate, reckless,
hope-filled self-giving.

It’s also about
hazards, the hope of harvest,
stony ground and good.

How the sown seed fares
turns on my response to hope:
stony ground or good?
