“Swords and Sparrows”

“Swords and Sparrows”

Date: June 21, 2020

by Marcia Mount Shoop
Matthew 10:24-39

“We follow a God of sparrows and swords. Jesus is reminding us that we must trust both in order to be faithful.  God loves us fiercely. And Jesus showed us what that looks like—the lengths to which God will go for God’s beloved.  The sword, you see, is not about domination or terror, the sword is about justice and accountability. And God didn’t create us to be helpless or hopeless. God created us to be courageous and connected.”
