In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 6, Year A in the Lectionary cycle:
Genesis 18:1-15, 21:1-7 & Psalm 116:1, 10-17; Exodus 19:2-8a & Psalm 100; Romans 5:1-8; Matthew 9:35-10:23.
We discuss the story of the the messengers coming to Abram and Sarah who laughed, the Lord's message to Israel at Mt. Sinai, Psalms of Thanksgiving, Paul's words on hope and the love of Jesus, and Jesus' sending out the twelve in His name.

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.
