Sunday, June 13, 2021 –  3rd Sunday after Pentecost

Good morning! And welcome to worship!

 

We are so glad you are able to join us today!

Scripture Readings:

Ezekiel 17:22-24; Psalm 92:1-4, 12-15; 2nd Corinthians 5:6-10, 14-17; Mark 4:26-34

 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

 

In our gospel reading today, the mustard seed becomes a great shrub that shelters the birds of the air, recalling ancient images of the tree of life. We would expect a cedar or a sequoia—a noble / mighty tree, but Jesus finds the power of God better imaged in a tiny, no-account seed. It is not the way we expect God’s activity to look / to be. Yet the tree of life is here, in the cross around which we gather, the tree into which we are grafted through baptism, the true vine that nourishes us with its fruit in the cup we share. It may not appear all that impressive, but while nobody is looking it grows with a power beyond our understanding.

Where do you see the kingdom and rule of God breaking through? Growing? Taking over?

**The bulletin and the sermon for today’s service is available for you to download.
