Is 30:19-21, 23-26, Ps 146:1-6,
Matthew 9:35-10:1, 5a, 6-8

Excuses, excuses!

Jesus asks us all to be his missionaries. Sorry, Lord, but we can’t because:

-- Kiwis don’t like talking about religion.

-- I don’t want people to think I’m a religious fanatic.

-- I don’t know enough about my faith to discuss it with others.

-- I’m embarrassed about the current scandals in the Church.

-- Other …?

Jesus replies: “When did I say it would be easy?”
