Chapter 4 of Mark’s Gospel contains a cluster of Jesus’ teaching. Three of the four parables contained within it use the metaphor of farmers, seeds and soils to teach us about the nature of the Kingdom of God. Some of these stories are very familiar but during this series we will seek to unpack them afresh and understand more of the challenge that they are bringing to both Christ Church and our lives.
