Headed to Bastrop this morning to visit Synod VP Evan, who lives at ground zero of the Texas wildfires.

This coming Sunday we begin three weeks of vineyard parables. The word Vineyard only appears in the Bible about a dozen times, and half of those references are in Matthew 20 and 21. As you read these two chapters, do you see the Vineyards as Israel, the kingdom of God or the world?
