Sermon 03 May 2020  (Easter 4)

Never, ever, back to normal! by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Jesus told the parable of a barren fig tree.  The owner wanted to cut it down, but allowed a period of time during which the gardener would fertilize it and prepare it to bear fruit.  The Church is experiencing a period of fertilization and preparation; if we emerge, only to return to the old “normal” ways, we will die.
