Good News: A Weekly Update from St Thomas Church—June 26, 2014
The Gospel for this coming Sunday is brief and to the point:
Jesus said, "Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple — Truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward." (Matthew 10:40–42)
How often are we the ones who are welcomed? How often are we the ones who do the welcoming? How often have we missed opportunities for both? May our hands and our hearts be ready to receive and to give this and every day.
Peace and blessing,
