We often imagine “faith” as something that happens in our minds or in our hearts. But Jesus says it is so much more than that: faith requires action! How can you be God’s hands in the world today?
Introduction to our readings for this week
Jesus’ parable about two sons who don’t do what they say reveals surprises in the reign of God. In the reading from Ezekiel the people claim the ways of the Lord are unfair, while God offers repentance and new life. Paul urges us to look to Christ as a model of humility, putting the interests of others above our own. Nourished by the broken bread and shared cup, we offer our lives for the sake of our needy world.
