Apprentices and harvest

The Rt Rev Colin Sinclair suggests rebranding ‘disciple’ as ‘apprentice’.

HARVEST Thanksgiving Services take place all round the country at this time of year. Jesus used the image of harvest to portray human need and the importance of more disciples sharing the good news. “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.

Jesus’ way of growing disciples was not to enrol them into a college for a course of formal instruction. Instead he said ‘Follow me’ and invited them to walk his way. Sometimes we get put off by the word ‘disciple’, feeling it is only for the elite. However, if we were to rebrand it ‘apprentice’ we might get a better understanding.
