  • Lk 23: 33-43. You don’t have to look long or hard within the Gospel of Luke to pick up on the fact that the Kingdom of God is not your run-of-the-mill, empire-type kingdom. It is a kingdom that is characterized by new life, hope and grace and, above all, love – the kind of love that never wearies, even through practicing forgiveness.

  • Luke 20:45-21:4. Whether we’re pledging our time or our financial resources, our pledges when carefully made become the benchmark for how we will stretch ourselves for the mission of Christ’s church. Such generosity of practice – such meaningful stewardship – such justice in the great church celebrates where Frederick Buechner calls “your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.” So, your pledge card is a way to keep your eye on Christ and focus your spiritual gifts. Then, as Paul told the Corinthians, “Give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

  • Deuteronomy 26: 1-11 and Jn 6: 1-15. God’s abundance transcends the market economy and so shall the people of God. We are invited to reconsider our place as consumers of God’s abundance. We are invited instead to see ourselves as the stewards –the disseminators of God’s goodness in this world until the next, to work for the people who have their voice drowned out and fight for the cause of those who are desperately in need of daily bread, and to follow the model of Christ who took what was available, gave thanks to God, and gave all that he had knowing that there would be some to spare when we trust in the abundance of God.

  • Lk 6: 20-36. A lot can happen when Jesus looks us squarely in the eye. Our gospel message reminds us that we are called to blur the lines between brokenness in the world with our love and help to affect a great reversal of fortune between people of poverties of every kind.
