A Communion Sermon

“Jesus is cutting to the heart of this with his parable. In the kingdom of God, in this kin-dom as we say, this reign of God’s is a reversal of what our world values. Maybe it takes on different shapes and styles over the course of 2,000 years, but in the end we’re still competing, still trying to be loved.”
