Is EVERYTHING in your life together and neatly wrapped up all the time? Probably not. Do you fall short sometimes — let yourself and others down. Sure. We all do.
But does our being far from perfect matter at church? Well, yes, but not perhaps in the way you fear.
Our Gospel lesson this Sunday is incredible Good News — Jesus forgives us when we miss the mark and invites us to try again. Jesus is ready to keep his faith in us (thereby helping us to restore our faith in ourselves?) and to give us another important assignment. What we do matters matters…
Thanks be to God!
