The Small Church Pastor- Organized Chaos

Another late start this week after a very urgent filled last week.  Such is the life of a smaller church pastor.  So often our lives are at best slightly organized chaos.

Sunday ‘s lectionary passage (Gospel) is Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43.  It the parable of the wheat and tares.  I started this blog on Tuesday and it is mid-day Wednesday.  It is as I said earlier, organized chaos.

I will meet with our local lectionary study group today.  I am doing my best to get ready for this study.  I have found studying the upcoming passages with others adds insights and helpful perspective toward preparing the sermon.

The focus I am looking at now is how this parable speaks to the impatient about the need for patience (in the midst of our organized chaos).
