The Kingdom of Heaven is Like… What?

The Kingdom of Heaven is Like… What?

Sermon Introduction –

In our gospel reading for this Sunday, Jesus gives a list of parables that describe the kingdom of heaven. They are odd stories, and may not be what we expected to hear. What does Jesus teach us about the kingdom, and how does that teach us to live differently today?

Introduction to this week’s readings –

As Solomon prays for wisdom, we seek to more deeply know the treasures of faith. In today’s gospel Jesus offers everyday images that reveal to us the reign of God: a tree that becomes a sheltering home, yeast that penetrates and expands, a treasured pearl, a net that gains a great catch. Even as we seek the riches of God’s reign, the great surprise is that God’s grace finds us first!
