From Our Pastor
33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time/2014
TAKE THE SAFE BET?
Dear Parishioners, Friends and Guests,
Whenever I hear Jesus’ parable of “the talents,” found in Matthew’s Gospel (25:14-30), shivers go up and down my spine. It’s pretty clear Jesus doesn’t want his disciples to be “safe betters.” He doesn’t want disciples to sit on the bench. He doesn’t want disciples to “let someone else do it.” He wants us invested and involved.
Jesus doesn’t just ask his disciples to follow. Following is the first step. Learning from Him is the second. The third step is being sent.
This gospel asks each one of us — at this time in your life, where are you, which step are you standing on? Can you take the next step?
