Twenty-second Sunday After Trinity -Church Back Home- November 4, 2012

Along with the sacrament, a secret. Or at least, some folks think that this is one.

Here we hear about forgiveness seventy times seven, which takes on added significance if you recognize the significance of numbers in a Jewish literary context. And then there’s the king who is owed a large sum by one of his people who is in turn owed a trifling sum.

There is a lesson here not only in forgiveness, but also in the art of giving and being given to! So obscure to some, yet so vital once we see it!

Blessed Be!

Bishop Cal
