Our life of discipleship is a process of spiritual growth and development. Young or old, new to the faith or a long-time believer, each of us is being continually formed and shaped by the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit who first gathers us as members of the Church, and it is the Spirit who guides our on-going growth in God’s grace. As we read and study God’s Word and receive the Lord’s Supper, we learn about and experience the grace God offers to us through Jesus Christ. We see how that grace changes us for now and eternity and the ways we can display that grace to our community and world.

Growing in Grace: "The Problem with Weeds"
The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost
In this parable, Jesus acknowledges the messiness of life, the seeming injustice of it all.
There is an old saying, "Time heals all wounds", but if we are truly honest, what we are really hoping for is that, "Time would wound all heels". We hope that those who deserve punishment get it in the end.
God is patient. He doesn't rush to judgment and neither should we.
In our current difficulties we live by faith, not by sight. We cannot know with certainty either about our own righteousness or that of others. We live now by faith in the word of God, that God's promises of eternal life for all who believe in him is ours through baptism. We live with hope that God will keep the promises made to us in Jesus, that all would grow together and that the harvest of the wheat would be gathered into the safety of God's shelter.
Through us who believe, God is at work to reach out to those with whom our roots intertwine, so that they may hear God's call.
