e-scat-ology | The Messy, Missional Process of Spiritual Formation

I drew this crude sketch in 2006. Be warned, it is gross, but very true. To quote my teen-age daughter when I do or say things like this, “What, are you 13?”

The painful truth is that it is only when things are difficult that the greatest growth and maturity happens in life. This is especially true of our spiritual formation. The term scat is the technical term for animal poop. It is only when life (and ministry) poops on you that the much needed fertilizer strengthens you for another season of fruitful ministry.

Enjoy the e-scat-ological cycle.
