"Imagine, you help your mom clean the house, and at the end of the day, your brother, sister and you all get $20, even if you start at different times. Does that seem fair?" The Rev. Yein Kim translates today's Gospel reading, the Laborers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1–16), into a familiar scene for families at the 9am service.
Connecting the $20, or a day's wages, to God's grace and love, Mother Yein explains what really matters in this passage: God’s forgiveness. "What a blessing it is that God is not fair. God is gracious. God is better than fair. With God, we are all included. We are all God's children." Watch the sermon.
