Dr. Tim Tennent and his wife Julie become the 8th family of leadership for Asbury Theological Seminary. We are excited, encouraged and anticipating the future of ATS under Dr. Tennent's leadership. In his sermon this morning, he spoke on the parable of the sower- the one where the man sows his seed all over the place. Some grows, some doesn't for various different reasons. We tend to focus on the soils- which kind of soil am I? etc. We forget that the parable's focus is the sower. God is the sower and he sows extravagantly- almost wastefully from our perspective of efficiency. God's grace and love is extravagant and from our evaluation, probably even wasteful. Dr. Tennent states, "We (ATS) want to be known as a place of extravagant sowing. Thanks be to God, the extravagant sower."
Good Word Dr. Tennent.
