This Sunday's Message

POWER STRUGGLE

 

Power struggles occur on every level of society,

from the world stage to relationships at work, to our

own homes. We struggle for position in the hierarchy

of power: Who has power over whom? How do

they wield it? What is the source of that power?

What is the healthy response?

In this Sunday’s Gospel reading the Pharisees

engage Jesus in a power struggle over whether Jews

should show tribute to Caesar by paying taxes. Jesus’

response puts this and every struggle for power

into perspective. In harmony with the words of Isaiah

and Paul, Jesus teaches us that God is the ultimate

source of all power—the power of earthly rulers, the

Pharisees, Jesus, the Church, and the power within

ourselves.
