'With what can we compare the Kingdom of God, or what parable will we use for it? It is like a mustard seed, which, when sown upon the ground, is the smallest of all the seeds on earth- yet when it is sown it grows up and becomes the greatest of all shrubs, and puts forth large branches, so that the birds of the air can make nests in the shade.'
Mark 4:30-32

For the past eleven months or so, I've been working as Missioner-in-Residence at Saint John's Cathedral, Denver. I realised that I was in over my head almost immediately after I arrived. This was a new role, not just at Saint John's, but (I think) in the Episcopal Church—the role of a young lay-person charged with trying to facilitate encounter between diverse groups of people, both within and outside the Cathedral, in the hope of empowering those loving relationships which manifest the Kingdom of God. There wasn't much of a blueprint to work from!

Over the last year, I have been the lucky participant in many aspects of St. John’s Faith in Action work. Over and over I have been blown away with the hard work and the strength of faith shown by parishioners at St. John’s doing this work. I feel so blessed (and humbled) to be part of a community that is working this hard to make Denver a more just and compassionate place.

Our picture of the poor and underserved in America has become pixelated when it comes to access to health care. There is no clearly defined profile of those with no or limited access to affordable healthcare. But how can those who can’t afford it find quality health care that is provided with compassion and embraces the patient’s dignity?
