Sermon: Handful of Sparrows

“Handful of Sparrows”

( June 22, 2008 ) Both the Gospel and the Hebrew Bible lesson today insist on a remarkable truth: God cares for the least valuable creatures in the world– even when those creatures are us. (Genesis 21:8-21, Matthew 10:24-39)

  1. I liked how you nuanced the very imagery Jesus chooses to use (sparrows) makes perfect correlations with the status of those he is speaking to (those who are poor and feel like a twofer too). Clever!

  2. Thanks for listening, Jeremy!
