Bonus Day1 Sermon! The Rev. Jane Mitchell Weston: "What Will We Plant Together?" (Mark 4:26-34)

The Rev. Jane Mitchell Weston
The Episcopal Church

In a special sermon for the 3rd Sunday after Pentecost, the Rev. Jane Mitchell Weston says the two parables in Mark 4 give us imagery of the kingdom of God starting as something tiny, almost imperceptible, and growing in mysterious and magnificent ways. Yet the growth in the parable is God’s doing, not ours--which can liberate us from the feeling that we have to do it all, that we’re in charge of the success of the Kingdom of God.
