Similarly, Jesus assures us that, even when we cannot see it, God's Kingdom is steadily growing, as from a tiny mustard seed. Christians live by faith and not by sight.

Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to the yeast rather than the bread, thus making God's Kingdom the invisible catalyst for growth rather than the finished product. That is dynamic.

Readings: 5th Sunday after Trinity

Jesus spoke, memorably, of the stones crying out (groaning in labour pains and hope?) if people were silent when the Messiah came bringing redemption. Can we hear the cries of the ravaged earth and the people who suffer on it? Do we respond with action?
