Share the Best Seed
There once was a farmer who grew the most excellent wheat. Every season he won the award for the best wheat in his county.
A wise woman came to him to ask him about his success.
He told her that the key was sharing his best seed with his neighbors so they could plant the seed as well.
The wise woman asked, “How can you share your best wheat seed with your neighbors when they compete with you every year?”
“That’s simple,” the farmer replied. “The wind spreads the pollen from everyone’s wheat and carries it from field to field.
If my neighbors grew inferior wheat, cross-pollination would degrade everyone’s wheat, including mine.
If I’m to grow the best wheat, I must help my neighbors grow the best wheat as well.”
This is not only excellent advice for growing the best crops, but also great advice for how to live your life.
If you want to live a meaningful and happy life, help others find happiness.
Remember: The value of your life is measured by the lives you touch with love, kindness, respect, and hope.
Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh)
In a world of knowledge explosion the need to update the fundamentals of one’s faith life has become a necessity. Men and women from different walks of life express the desire to enrich their faith life in consonance with the contemporary world and its challenges. The study of theology – seen till recently as meant only for the clergy or the religious – is becoming more popular with the lay faithful who see it as a right as well as a duty emerging from their Christian vocation. Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) is an attempt to respond to this quest, and is designed as a life-enrichment course in the Indian/Asian context.
The Jesuit-run Vidyajyoti College of Theology, Delhi, has been in the field of theological education for a century and a half. True to its name ‘Vidyajyoti’ (light of knowledge) aims at spreading the light of theology far and wide. The Second Vatican Council had a dream when it wrote: “Let the laity, therefore, diligently apply themselves to a more profound knowledge of revealed truth…” (LG, 35). Sharing in the same dream Vidyajyoti has initiated the new Distance Education Programme in Theology (DEPTh) primarily for the lay faithful. It welcomes all who desire to deepen their Christian faith, and search for avenues of deeper participation in the mission of the Church.
