November 2022

You’ve worked hard all year long to track what you planted, where you planted it, what you applied, where you applied it, and finally, what you harvested. That is a lot of work to let go to waste.

CropTalk: The Sower

November 2022

“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,’ but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” James 2:14-17
