At the end of John chapter four Jesus tells his disciples to take a look at the fields around them. Maybe because they were fishermen they needed some pointers on farming and related that to their job as fishers of men. We only have today to harvest what stands ready in the field right now.
As a teen age I remember working wity friends putting up hay in the summer. Once the farmer saw the grass had reached that perfect point of height and the fields were dry it needed to be cut. We worked long hours into the night getting it all safely stacked in the barn. There was no time for delay.
In the same way there is an urgency to reach those who are spending the final chapter of life in Nursing Care. Many are open and receptive as never before to the message of Christ. The fields are ready God help us to be ready also!
