Something to Ponder

As we approach Advent, the preparation season before Christmas...

Ephesians 1:1-23
This passage leaves you breathless! Paul wrote it originally in one sentence, all 14 verses - an outpouring of praise to God for all the blessings that he has showered upon us. If I could just catch that excitement and keep it all day!

Matthew 25:14-30
The parable of the talents is always a difficult one to read and interpret. The one who had done a lot with the money that his master gave him was rewarded with more work to do and with a higher position. The one who had done nothing except save his money or his talents had what he owned taken away from him, and he was tossed out of the kingdom. It sounds tough - help me to use the talents and money I have for God's glory!

The sermon we heard [on Sunday] turned this interpretation on its head! Bishop Barry said that we are to imagine who we are in the parable. Read more at >> http://www.parishofvaudreuil.com/services/study-2/first-thoughts/
