the seed of god

The seed of God is in us.

Given an intelligent

and hardworking farmer,

it will thrive and grow

up into God, whose seed

it is; and accordingly its

fruits will be God-nature.

Pear seeds grow into

pear trees, nut seeds

into nut trees, and

God seeds into God.

+ Meister Eckhart 

Dear God, make us intelligent, hardworking farmers, one to another.  Let us grow into our true nature.  Challenge us.  Nourish us.  Thrive in us, and let us thrive in you.  Amen.


Thanks to Geoff Quinn for these beautiful, farmer's market pears!
