On this 18th Sunday after Pentecost our focus is on the 10 Commandments and the parable of the Tenants from Matthew's Gospel. Both of these accounts have important messages for us as we travel throught this time of pandemic restrictions, fear of illness, difficult work situations and frustrations on various levels. It has also been a time of wonder and generosity and those same passages have some things to say to us through those times. May the materials presented in this post be a vehicle into God's presence this day and may you be blessed in a surprising way. We pray that you will be strengthened for the journey ahead.
