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).
