Our gospel reading this Sunday is the parable of the sower. I like this reading because of its imagery and because it provides so much food for thought. I don't know why some people find a religious direction and others don't. Time magazine once had on their cover a headline that said "The God Gene". The premise was that some of us are genetically wired toward being religious and others not so much. There may be some validity for that. When I reflect on my own family, we were all raised about the same. We all went to church. We all said grace at the table. However, as adults we each took a different direction in our religious life. I don't know.
I hope I get it all sorted out by tomorrow's sermon.
