The Parable of the Sower
The Parable of the Sower is one of Jesus' most famous teachings. A farmer throws seed onto the ground it goes. Some seed lands on a well-trodden path, some among thorns, some on rocky ground, and some on fertile soil. Only the seed that falls on fertile soil grows.

While Jesus has much to say about why faith doesn't grow, he is much quieter about what actually DOES help faith grow?

Join us this Sunday as Hillside member and seminarian Matthew Morrissette takes up this important question.
