Pastor Jon reflects on Jesus' story of the sower and our call to sow love in this city. Followers of Jesus share their faith story constantly. Followers of Jesus have received the fullness of love in Christ. Thus, if the world lacks love is not because there is too little love in the world but too little expressions of love.
Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23
"Lord make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
And where there is sadness, joy.
O divine master grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
- Prayer of St. Francis
