In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 7, Year A in the Lectionary cycle:
Genesis 21:8-21 & Psalm 86:1-10, 16-17; Jeremiah 20:7-13 & Psalm 69:8-20; Romans 6:1-11; Matthew 10:24-39.
We discuss the Lord's saving provision for Hagar & Ishmael in the wilderness, Jeremiah's lament & disconsolation, Paul's doctrinal approach in Romans, and Jesus's warnings about the forces that oppose the in-breaking of Kingdom.

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.
