In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 15
(Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 12:49-56
; Hebrews 11:29-12:2
; Psalm 80:1-2,8-18
; Isaiah 5:1-7
We discuss the Lord's love for His people, as seen in His provision and care for His vineyard Israel and His promised future and faithfulness for all His people. We also consider the bitterness of injustice and wickedness that comes from those who know the Lord's will, reject it, and instead cause injury to others. And finally we remember the example and invitation of Jesus's endurance, hope, and joy.
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.
