In this episode, we discuss the readings for Proper 7 (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 8:26-39; Galatians 3:23-29; Psalm 42-43; 1 Kings 19:1-15.

We explore Jesus' encounter with the Gerasene demoniac - the destitution of his life and the restoration Jesus brings, Paul's repeated use of the theme of being clothed with Christ, the emotional honesty of the Psalms of lament, and the dramatic story of Elijah's...burnout? need for a snack and a nap? searching for the Lord?

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
