The Yoke is a very basic tool. It exists in every culture in various forms. Yokes are found in gyms where they are used for weight lifting, on dairy farms for carrying milk, on the streets of many cities for moving large quantities of goods. A yoke is a useful tool. This Sunday we will reflect on Jesus' invitation to take up his Yoke. He does not leave us wondering what to do with his Yoke, and it is helpful to us to remember what it's for.

This week’s gospel is called the parable of the sower… or is it the parable of the seeds? The sower seems rather random and the seeds helpless in the face of birds and dehydration; perhaps this should be called the parable of the soils. This week we will consider ways to keep our hearts receptive, watered and weed free so that our lives can be spiritually productive.

Greek Philosophers, Native Americans, and in fact every people throughout history has sensed that there is a spiritual reality to our world that lurks just beyond our senses. In this Sunday's Gospel reading, Jesus explains some truth of this world unseen and connects it to our experience as his disciples. When we remember the truth of our reality, our hopes and dreams align with Jesus', our anxieties settle, and our sense of mission quickens. Getting this right matters. We will explore the World we want to see but only get glimpses of. Or do we only get glimpses?

The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, like yeast, like a hidden treasure, like a pearl of great value, like a net thrown into the sea… Jesus taught in parables to teach past people’s expectations and use the unexpected to reach past our defenses. This Sunday we will look at this rapid fire volley of parables in Matthew to come to a deeper understanding of the kingdom of heaven.
