Sermon

In the morning’s scripture, a vineyard owner employs a series of workers, some working the full day and some only a part. At the end of the day, he pays them all the same wages. This may seem to us unjust, but Senior Minister Molly Baskette suggests that the parable can open a wider of vision of generosity, justice and equity. “The first will be last and the last will be first.” The fire that happened at First Church almost a year ago has also opened up the vision of where the church is headed and the work that needs to be done, as has the current political climate. Work in the vineyard is virtuous and meaningful and isn’t just about labor but about participation and collaboration.
