Eccesiastes 5:1-7 and Matthew 13:1-9
The Mind's Best Operating Practice

"There's something missing!" This may have been your thought if you've been following along in this summer series on Ecclesiastes.  As if on cue, the author addresses the fundamental connection between humans and God but he does so in a way that takes seriously what can get in the way.  Fr. Allen connects what Qohelet has to say with Jesus' famous Parable of the Sower in hopes that all of us will understand the outstanding privilege and dangers offered to us in the worship of God.
