In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 14, Year A:
Genesis 37:1-4,12-28 & Psalm 105:1-6,16-22,45b; 1 Kings 19:9-18 & Psalm 85:8-13; Romans 10:5-15; Matthew 14:22-33.
We discuss the way Joseph's brothers violently betrayed him, Elijah's moment of exhaustion and the Lord's sustaining care, the complexity of Paul's theology in Romans 10, and Jesus' presence with His fearful disciples in the middle of the storm.

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.
