"The Virtue of Going to Seed"

5 Lent.B.21
Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 12:20-33
The Rev. Melanie McCarley

Were I to hazard a guess, I would say most of us would not consider it a compliment if someone to look at our home and remark: “My goodness, it looks as if you’re really let this place go to seed.” “Going to seed” is another way of saying that something is past its prime. We a person who appears unkept, and we might say: “Look at that priest, that woman has really let herself go to seed.”
