In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 16 (Year C in the lectionary cycle): Luke 13:10-17; Hebrews 12:18-29; Psalm 71:1-6; Jeremiah 1:4-10.
We discuss Jesus' unbinding of the woman who cannot stand straight as well as His rebuke of the synagogue leader who misunderstands the nature of Sabbath restoration. We consider the unshakeable promises of Hebrews 12, the beautiful depiction of the Psalmist's trust in the Lord, and the dramatic call of the prophet Jeremiah.

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.
