The Face of Mercy

THE FACE OF MERCY–Matthew 20:1-16–Black Elk

Today in the Examiner Michael Barba in his articled “San Quentin Inmates Await Their Fate” describes inmates who have been on death row a long time, all waiting to die, all living in limbo.  The picture of mental illness and deterioration is not pretty at all.

The parable today of the estate manager who pays everyone the same regardless of when they started to work reminds us that God is the judge, he is the one who determines when we live or die. God’s rewards are always equal. God in Christ always shows the face of mercy.

Let us vote Yes on 62 in November–let us be merciful, as Christ is merciful.

COME JOIN US ON FRIDAY AT THE INTERSECTION OF GRANT AND CALIFORNIA

NOON-1:00 P.M.

PASSING OUT FLYERS AND TALKING TO PEOPLE ABOUT VOTING YES ON 62!
