Tonight I just came across Seth Godin's blog entry where he asked dozens of interesting people, "What matters now?" He then compiled the answers and published them in an e-book.
The e-book answers made me reflect about the importance of powerful questions as I'm crafting my next book, Lessons from the Vineyard-Insights on our Earth, Character and Spirit. The seed sprouted with the last question I asked 87 Oregon winemakers, owners and vineyard workers for my last book: "What have you learned from the vineyard?"
Inspired by how Jesus used parables about the vineyard for his lessons, I thought the vineyard could be a metaphor for my new Lessons book. After all, isn't the vineyard an interaction between man, nature and God?
So then what does the vineyard teach us?
