W. Brian Lane shares some ways to use engaged learning techniques in church settings.
By challenging the hearer as to whether they will “hear” and follow the teacher, the Parable of the Sower and the Soils (Matthew 13:1-9) offers a larger framework for considering parables as part of the Master Teacher’s toolkit.
Today’s post on the Parable of the Sower and the Soils is the second in a series exploring Parables Jesus Told. The first post, Entrusted . . ., considered the Parable of the Three Servants, or, The Talents (Matthew 25:14-30), blog.emergingscholars.org/2018/05/entrusted/.

The purpose of “Every Job a Parable” is to help kindle a new kind of vocational imagination, to help you experience God at work
more, and to help you read the parable that is your job.
