  • This passage calls us to ponder our own understanding of who Jesus is in the world. It was Peter’s testimony, Peter’s evidence of hope in the power of what God can and will do in the world, that is the rock upon which this church is built. And, we are called to ponder our own belief.

  • This discussion of what faith is, is real and important and has consequences not only for our own personal faith, but others too. There is a time for retreat, for tending to one’s spirit, one’s spirituality – and there is a time to remember that our words and our actions matter to God and to the world.

  • Matthew 14: 13-21

    In the midst of the anxiety of not having enough for themselves, or for the crowd, Jesus called the disciples to change their ideas about their own power in the world. Jesus called the disciples to engage with the daunting reality before them, to engage with hope, to engage without the fear of scarcity. With God's help, 'you feed them' with what you have. Jesus encouraged the disciples to draw nearer, to feel hope, to give out of a sense of abundance and in doing so, the miraculous beauty of God's love will become so evident you might even taste it, and watch it pour over the brims of baskets when all are filled.

  • Mt 25: 14-31. When Trijicon or any company puts Jesus' sayings on their weapons components intended for human destruction, it is an attempted character assassination of our Lord. When any individual or entity misappropriates the sayings of Jesus to eventuate a murder, it is perpetuating the too-often held perception that evil is right and goodness will not prevail.
