Today, The Des Moines Register, publishes an essay in its opinion section that I wrote last month about our harvest.
The essay first appeared over at The High Calling, where I regularly write about the intersection of faith and work. And today, I’m honored that the Register is reprinting a revised version of that story, “From the Seat of a Tractor.”
The story is slightly recast to reflect the end of harvest, but its message is the same. This is the story of three farmers — one with a dying hope, one in need of help, and one who felt a call.
If you’d like to read the story, you can find it by clicking here.
May your Sabbath day, too, be filled with reminders of a harvest.
