Jesus is not very good at Lording. His kingdom works not by divide-and-conquer, but by sharing love and bread, including the outcast, bringing all his disciples into the "inner circle." He is not a secret-keeper, but freely shares the righteousness, love, truth and mercy that is his Father's gift to all who seek God.
This Sunday, as we honor those who have welcomed us into the world, who have mothered us, Jesus again invites us into the greatest fellowship imaginable: with God and with those whom God loves. (Yes, that's everyone!) Rev. Judith Spindt will preach and preside at a service of Holy Communion.
