Organic Misses the Mark but the McConnells have the Solution
We all know that the practical demonstration of a Christian is a stronger witness than any spoken word. This is why we have a vocation given in the health work to keep the gospel in word rising higher, and higher. However, what if there where an additional arm of strength available for the health message just as the gospel has been given a right arm to strengthen it, and further what if this arm of power was capable of fueling the whole body of Christ to the very final work.
Can you think of a work that offers the same dignity, freedom, and uplifting for fallen man that the gospel offers? It might be hidden beneath today's vernacular of unpromising opinions, and the considerations of unworthy fields of labor, and even so God said that He, "cursed the ground for man's sake".
What we're some of the reasons for God cursing the ground? Can you imagine a being in deep need of redemption working a ground that yielded perfect results without strenuous efforts. Would it not lend to the idea that in the spiritual realm he need only but forth a similar minimal effort, and reach the same outstanding results.
Home for Health joining (not melding working jointing) with Golden Moment Farms in a venture to bring greater awareness to the needs of society and educate others about how they can get healthy and stay healthy. This project entails the McConnell family moving from Colorado to Eastern Kentucky and setting up a one acre commercial greenhouse. This is a huge project to us, but one that will have a huge impact.
Nourishment is key to our prosperity and wellbeing, not only as individuals but as a society. The question is how well-nourished are we? We're not talking about the quantity of food we eat, we're talking about the quality of the food. Are the foods we consume highly mineralized, nutrient dense, energy packed powerhouses that make us feel vibrant and alive when we eat them? Do they protect us from environmental hazards and the stresses of life? Based on the overwhelming evidence, the answer has to be no. In fact we are largely malnourished.
The problem is not new and it continues to grow. At issue are agricultural soils that are depleted, degraded and dead from a decades long use of production models that have exploited natural systems rather than fostering them. God perfectly designed nature to provide for our wellbeing. Highly mineralized, nutrient dense, energy packed, life giving foods come from living soils of the same character. Restoring and sustaining the natural systems that give us these foods is our growing model.
So how do we accomplish that? First we replenish the soil with complete and balanced mineralization. This in turn begins restoring the structure of the soil so that it can breathe and hold moisture. We now have the environment that returns biological activity to the soil. The natural systems take over from there and our job becomes one of giving back to the land whatever is taken away in the foods we harvest. In all our efforts we focus on fostering what is right not fighting what is wrong. Healthy soils grow healthy plants that are rarely attacked by pests and diseases. When we eat these foods we will be healthy, thrive and be more resistant to pests and disease too.
We have grown this way for 20 years and this model has stood the test of time, continuing to improve year by year.
While we have focused on physical nourishment here, we believe our need for nourishment goes well beyond that. Mental, emotional, social and spiritual nourishment are equally as important.
