Come sit on the dock with me?
We’re listening to the Parable of the Sower with a view of Bar Harbor, ME just down from this week’s vacation house. *Pinch me!* Bar Island is over my right shoulder.
In order to amplify this scripture to the crowds, Jesus climbs into a boat to make a natural amphitheater of the hills around the Sea of Galilee. I’ll bet the boat rocked and swelled with Jesus’ words just like the dock does here.
