The root word of axiomatic, axiom—a self-evident truth—comes from the Greek axioma, meaning "authority”. We use it to describe compact, often pithy statements that have the authority of truth about them.
For example, “Out of sight, out of mind” is axiomatic because we all know it experientially as true. “Familiarity breeds contempt” is too.
It’s the latter Jesus confronts in this week’s Gospel reading, and he does it with an axiom of his own.
See you Sunday,
Second Sunday Sandwiches
We are going to make another 100 lunches for our friends at the Annapolis Light House right after worship this Sunday. Plan to stay for about 45 minutes. We'll make lunch, we'll eat lunch, we'll have a blast.
Consider also donating what you would have spent on lunch this Sunday. You can choose Second Sunday Sandwiches from the form on the Giving page. We want to be a people who learn to walk with the many different kinds of neighbors we have, and giving up the lunch we might have planned for ourselves is a way of blessing those who are in need right now.
