The Kingdom of Heaven may not be fair, but it is generous.


A sermon offered on the 16th Sunday after Pentecost, September 20, 2020.

We learn at an early age what is fair. Our readings from Exodus about manna in the wilderness and the parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard in Matthew challenge our understanding of fairness. The Kingdom of Heaven isn't about fairness, it is about generosity.

Readings: Exodus 16:2-15 * Psalm 105:1-6, 37-45 * Philippians 1:21-30 * Matthew 20:1-16
