David Fitch has an interesting perspective (On The Ones Who Would Go And Seed Missional Communities) on church planting in North America. I think the metaphor fits pretty well. I would also say that in some places, grocery stores are still thriving. But probably in more and more places we are going to see the need for seeding gardens.
Here's a really strange thought - are Free Will Baptists better suited to seeding gardens than grocery stores?
What do you think?
