A Harvest about to Rot

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. – Matthew 9:37 They stand at attention in tight little rows, soldiers in the fight against take-out. I pop into the cold storage that sits against the hillside next to our home and survey the troops. It has taken many hours of hard work, but I am […]
