It's Not Right! It's Not Fair! It's the Kingdom of God!

Dear Folks -

It is not at all difficult to look into the world and see things that we think are "unfair" and "unjust." My own experience is that often when I try to pay attention to what is going on within and around me, I find that I am filled with judgment. Furthermore, more often than not, our efforts to "set things right" end up only making matters worse.

Jesus told a delicious little story, often called "the parable of the laborers in the vineyard," where laborers who were hired late in the day were paid just as much as those who had worked all day long in the sweltering sun. Not fair is it?

I amplify on this theme and give my interpretation of this parable in the talk that follows.

Much love,

Bill Kerley
