5th Sunday in Ordinary Time 2020

Salt and Light

What are the differences between the leader and the follower? When does a follower lead?

The path to leadership is a hard one. True leaders are committed to a goal or a cause. They are also willing to sacrifice time, talent, and treasure for their passion. They gather as many followers by their example as by their ideals. In fact, many measure leaders’ goals and passion by their example. Do they merely talk? Or are they willing to walk the path?

In one sense, a follower becomes a leader the moment he or she makes a commitment beyond the norm. At that point, the easy way becomes difficult. In Matthew’s gospel, Jesus honored his followers who took the hard way, those who lived out the Beatitudes. Those who sacrificed for the Kingdom would be the salt of the earth and light to the world.

It is still not too late for someone to join Alpha on Tuesday evening. This coming week’s talk is – “How can we have faith?” A light meal is provided.
