Sermon: “Mirror Image of the Gospel”
The Fourth Sunday in Kingdomtide, September 24, 2017
Pastor proclaims the Gospel: Matthew 20:1-16
I share the story of what it was like for me to be a priest in anonymity in 1976, picking cucumbers with migrant farm workers. I felt indignation at the lack of fairness reflected in the workers in today’s Gospel…I needed to read this Gospel more carefully!
Audio of the sermon:
*The names of the Sundays are taken from Pastor’s book, The Bible Through the Seasons: A Three-Year Journey with the Bible. There are thirteen Sundays in the season of Kingdomtide — autumn in the northern hemisphere, spring in the southern. Advent begins on December 2.
