Over at Internet Monk, there’s a posting on Church Planting that prompts me to reply:
I’m just a Catholic country boy, what do I know, but you guys are confusing me with all this planting stuff.
I mean, sure, corn or apple trees or even evil stuff like tobacco needs to be planted but that’s just the start. It’s the howing, fencing around and keeping bugs off that take most of the work.
Shucks, even the planting part mostly depends on preparing the soil beforehand, that’s just natural law.
