Gospel: Matthew 16:13-20 (Pentecost 13: Series A)

Discipleship involves listening to the Word of God. But discipleship is not only about listening to the Word of God. It also involves listening to the world.

Gospel: Matthew 15:21-28 (Pentecost 12: Series A)

In the kitchen of Jesus, God gathers individuals who live on the margins. Their lives do not fit the dress code of a five-star restaurant. Their language offends and their behavior dismays and, deep down, like the disciples, we may just want Jesus to send them away.

Gospel: Matthew 14:22-33 (Pentecost 11: Series A)

No matter how far down you fall into the wavering waters of “If you are...” prayers, Jesus is there.
