The Parable of the Yeast

What experience do you have in working with yeast? If none, think of someone who does and ask them about it. If you haven’t done so before, purchase a packet of yeast and mix it in ¼ cup of lukewarm water. Take note of what you observe.

In your experience how can you ensure that yeast is effective? (Again if you don’t have experience, seek out someone who does.) Is yeast easy to work with or not? Explain your thinking.

I, for one, have marvelous stories of times when the yeast ‘worked’ when I least expected it to and of when it didn’t work when I had every reason to think it would. Does my experience offer any insight into the Kingdom of Heaven? What might we take from that?
