Mark’s gospel tells us a parable of soils – no soil, rocky soil, thorny soil, and finally good soil – places where the gospel produces joy and faith. Who exactly is good soil? It is not who you might expect. Status, education, social concerns, right thinking, wealth – none of these things matter. The good soil is born of faith and the realization that only Jesus can help us. The good soil is Mark’s way of talking about the Beloved Community that is knit together by faith and the love of Christ.
