In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 17, Year A:

Exodus 3:1-15 & Psalm 105:1-6, 23-26, 45c; Jeremiah 15:15-21 & Psalm 26:1-8; Romans 12:9-21; Matthew 16:21-28.

We discuss Moses' call at the burning bush, Jeremiah's derail into desire for personal vengeance, Paul's beautiful picture of mutual love in Romans 12, and Jesus' teaching as He turns His face toward Jerusalem and the cross.
