Being inclusive to bring Christ to the world

Thursday of the Third Week of Advent

Fr. Ron reflects on our logo and vision to be an open community that is not closed in. Being inclusive is found in today’s Gospel. Fr. Ron reflects on the genealogy describes in Matthew’s gospel. Part of the purpose of the genealogy is how inclusive it is. While it is usually chased back to the Father, it includes, women, both Jews and Gentiles, and mostly very unknown people, both saints and sinners. God is working through all of them to bring Christ to the world.

Fr. Ron encourages us to be more inclusive so that we can bring Christ to the world.
