In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 10 (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 10:25-37; Colossians 1:1-14; Psalm 82; Amos 7:7-17.
We begin with the expert in the law's question, "Who is my neighbor?" and Jesus' incisive and direct response in the story of the Good Samaritan. We consider the affectionate companionship of Paul and his colaborers at Colossae, and we discuss the welcome reverberation of God's intention for compassion, mercy, and justice as found in the Psalm and Amos.

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.
