A Discipleship Garden

i have this idea for small groups in churches that emerge up out of the ground. pastors nurture them, fertilizing the ground, watering, weeding, providing stakes when necessary, but don't try to force them into a template. they allow them to find their way. there are no objectives or outcomes. the expectation is simply that they continue to journey together. the question that is asked is not "where are we going?", but rather "who's coming with me?"
