Jesus tells a parable, a particularly edgy one, which he concludes by saying, from the one to whom much has been entrusted, even more will be demanded. Jesus hopes that we will take seriously the idea that we are created for Life with God and entrusted with gifts to promote that Life. The ancient community of Christians known as the Thessalonians serve as an example of people who took that seriously. They were known as people who came alive as God’s creations and shared God’s Life with others. On this Sunday, we celebrate how that has happened in our community.
