He walks and sits and talks with men,
His cheeriest tales he plies,
And gloom slinks to its dismal den
While warming glows come forth again
And cheerfulness replies.

George loved people, storytelling, teaching and learning. He and my mother, Jean, shared their eclectic tastes in music, books and interests with my brother, Ian, and me.
Sower’s Trust was named in honor of George, (which means farmer). He planted seeds of hope and encouragement with his actions & words of truth, wit and whimsy.
Dad was always helping someone with a project, pursuing their dream, and/or whatever God led him to do for those in need.
George Flynn was an actor, writer and filmmaker. He had a dream – for his family to own their own home and a place where they could work on their ‘numerous projects in various stages of development’.
Since George passed away, his dream has been amended.
Not just to help meet the needs of his widow, but to rekindle our culture’s lost “family of neighbors”
As his daughter, I would like to carry on Dad’s legacy of helping people: by creating a home for learners and doers so they can fellowship together in truth with grace to achieve authentic harmony. I’d also like to create a sanctuary and support network for helpers. Thus begins the story behind Sower’s Trust.
