The Parable of the Sower



Faith, the pastor knows, is trust in things we can't see or touch or hear but guide our lives behind a curtain. When you succeed along the invisible path, it's called purpose. When you keep failing but walk on undeterred, it's called stubborn.


Or worse, foolish.


"The Energizer Bunny," club co-worker Diana Dues calls {Pastor Carpenter Rock].She calls Rock a walking sermon and thinks of an old parable.


There are four kinds of people in the world, the story goes. There are the ones who plow the land, sow the seeds, water the new growth and harvest the crop.


Rock, Ms. Dues determines, is a seed sower. But the thing about the seed sower, she says, is that he often doesn't see the results of his labor.
