Homily: Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Sunday we find Jesus trying to describe what the Kingdom of God, (aka, God’s love) is like.  No doubt this question continues to be asked 2,000 years later.  I always find it interesting that some people still love to state what God loves and what God doesn’t love – as if they knew!   But the answer Jesus gives resides in a parable – a puzzle.  And that somehow God’s love is like a weed - a mustard bush grown from a tiny seed.  Really?  I thought we want God’s love and vice-a-versa?  But weeds are undesirable, right?  Confused?  So were the disciples.  But actually, it all makes great sense.  See what I mean…
