Jesus teaches in parables to confound his hearers, to awaken us to the potential within us. As the branches of the mustard bush are big enough to offer shelter to the birds of the sky, so the arms of the Church are to be open, offering hope to all. And the Church, of course, is US. It is all of us, already aware of the gift and task of living in the reign of God.
What kind of call to love do you find in the story of the mustard seed? How do you intend to respond?
