One of my boys had a birthday recently. To his delight he got a set of stick insects eggs and a seed for a banana plant. We planted the seed and left the eggs to hatch. Every day we checked and then, the delight on his face when after only three weeks the stick insects started to arrive. We may have to wait up to six months for the banana plant.
Things are supposed to grow, plants, insects, people and churches. Put them in the right soil and watch what happens. Change and transformation is around, sometimes it is hard. But growth and the change that comes with it should be expected, encouraged and embraced.
