Wild grapes. (Isaiah 5:4)
We look for basic...we get wild!
We look for safe...wildness ensues.
Born to be wild, unruly and unstoppable.
That is the human condition.
Yet God desires to change wild grapes...to something...More.
Could Wild Grapes be an unsustainable varietal?
The Advent journey travels through the wild desert and vineyard.
Wild grapes transformed by smooth grace.
Wild spirits focused, refined and redefined.
Wild becomes wide...like jazz.
God sees wild and says...let’s improvise!
