Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross 


It's a pretty rotten deed those tenant farmers pull off: beating servants, killing some, and ultimately killing the owner's son. And they do all of this with the hope that the vineyard will become theirs.

One way of understanding the parable is recognizing that the tenants have their place, just like we do in God's creation. In the end we don't really own anything. We are stewards of what God has given us.

The parable invites us to ask how we exercise our stewardship in this world. While we might not be beating up other servants, we may consider how our buying habits affect others in the world. In what ways does our consumer society help or harm others in the vineyard of the world?
