sowing seeds

In today's Gospel, Jesus offers three parables to describe the Kingdom of Heaven. This reading is a continuation of Jesus' discourse that we began reading last Sunday. All three parables use commonplace experiences to describe aspects of the Kingdom of Heaven. The first parable is longer and more detailed than the next two, and it alerts us to the two-fold reality of the Kingdom of Heaven. The beginnings of the Kingdom of Heaven can be found in this world. The fruition of the Kingdom of Heaven, however, will not be realized until the final judgment. The second and third parables call to our attention the abundance that will result from the small beginnings of the Kingdom of Heaven. In each case the image is of the superabundance that God brings out of even the smallest of signs of the Kingdom.
 Contained within these parables are words of caution as well as words of consolation. In the parable of the sower we are warned against judging others. To judge and uproot the “weeds” prematurely will harm the wheat; final judgment rests with God.
 In the parables of the mustard seed and the yeast, we are consoled by the message that God can work wonders and produce abundance from even the smallest beginnings of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Stop The Violence!

Verity was founded in 1974 in Sonoma County as a crisis line that men, women, or children who had been sexually assaulted could call. Over the past 38 years the organization has expanded its services to include Prevention/Education, and Crisis Intervention. That crisis line is still the only one of its kind in Sonoma County and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call (707) 545-7273 for help.
The local YWCA hot line is (707) 546-1234, also available 24/7.
