Sixth Sunday After Pentecost
This week Solomon displays his wisdom to God, who rewards him with even greater sagacity; Paul gives the Romans one of the greatest belief statements in Christianity ["For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."]; and Jesus offers his third agricultural parable.
