In the parable of the Sower (Matthew 13:18-23), Jesus describes people who hear the word but are beset by thorns, including worries of this life and the allure of wealth. The seed (God’s Word) thrown among the thorns has difficulty growing when overly concerned about material things and the problems of this life rather than trusting God for all of their needs. Thanks be to God for redirecting our focus away from security and happiness of material goods through the ministries of worship, learning and serving together whereby we learn the true joy of giving.

About this blog
Welcome to my running online dialog on matters of our life together in faith community at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church—where the grace of Christ Jesus our Lord engages each of us and, in turn, sends us out to engage others with that grace as well. I look forward to learning and growing together.
