Parable Of The Sower Grace,faith,works. Audio Homily 2010.

The Epistle and Gospel selections today, which are rarely read together, both proclaim the Gospel – the “Good News” in both the same and different ways. Ephesians is the classic declaration of the Gospel,and the parable of the sower speaks in metaphor, but both declare that how the gospel is received by us and what we do with it determines whether or not we “bring forth fruit with patience”, and be His workmanship … unto good works”.
