Do We Really Count in This Big World

On Saturday the Mens Group discussed a possible answer to Billy Bigelow’s lament: There’s a heck of a lotta stars in the sky and the sky’s so big the sea looks small. Two little people, you and I; we don’t count at all.

In his gospel St. Mark (4:30-32) answers Billy and reminds us of how the smallest of seeds can flourish and grow infinitely: “The kingdom of God is like, a mustard seed, which is the smallest of all seeds on earth.  Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.”
