James’ Notes

JULY 27, 2014

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

[Jesus] put before them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” —Matthew 13:31,32 (excerpt from Gospel)

God of grace and God of glory,
on thy people pour thy power;
crown thine ancient Church’s story;
bring her bud to glorious flower.
Grant us wisdom, grant us courage,
for the facing of this hour.
—Hymn 594 (excerpt), Harry Emerson Fosdick (1878-1969), alt.
