just a thought...

Instead of fields, then, buy souls that are in trouble, according to your ability. Look after widows and orphans and do not neglect them. Spend your riches and all your establishments you have received from God on this kind of field and houses. It was for this that the Master bestowed wealth on you, to perform this ministry for Him.

(The Shepherd of Hermas, First Parable, 8) - quoted in Joseph A. Grassi, Informing the Future: Social Justice in the New Testament.
