Chainsaw Art with Joel Mitchell [video]

“It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.
The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings…”

Wendell Berry

I’ve always wondered what Paul had in mind when he urged this fellowship of the like-hearted to not let themselves grow weary in doing good (Gal. 6:9). How do we go about that? How do we practice living in such a way that we won’t get weary?

One of the antidotes to weariness I’ve found is savoring the stories of people who have experienced the fruit of becoming more wholehearted and growing in their life with God.

We’re now accepting applications to our next Become Good Soil Intensive. As a means of inviting you into what the Intensive is and what its fruit can be, I want to share a story of a BGS alumnus who has walked in this message for years.

Joel Mitchell is becoming, by day and by decade, the kind of man to whom God can entrust more and more of the care of his Kingdom. And much of that takes place with chainsaw in hand.

I invite you to join us for 25 minutes and allow his story to strengthen you.

For the Kingdom,
