In your life and work, what do you see in the landscape you inhabit?
Yes, the effects of the seasons will be evident, and whether there are people around.
I wonder, though, what is the nature of the underlying landscape?
Is it one of years of harvest and no planting? And perhaps weeds and rubbish piling up?
Or is it fertile, like a well-tended garden?
Yes, these are metaphors, but you get the point.
This is about the long game of our ‘role in the ongoing creation of the world’ (Rob Bell).
What landscape are we cultivating?
And what more can we do together?
