What in the world does Janice Joplin have to do with prayer?

Here's a hint.... ....read on! Proper 12 Hosea 1:2-10; Ps 85; Col 2:6-19; Lk 11:1-13 28 July 2019 “Teach us to pray,” the disciples ask Jesus. It is the only time in all of Scripture that the disciples make a direct request of Jesus to teach them anything. And we should not be surprised that they wanted Jesus to teach them to pray, since Luke’s Gospel shows Jesus at prayer before every major event in his three years of earthly ministry. According to Luke, Jesus was praying before he calls the disciples, before the Transfiguration, before the confession of Peter, before his revelation of his coming suffering and death, and just before his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane. And Jesus was even

Action-Oriented Mercy, Love and Compassion

Proper 10 Luke 10:25-37 14 July 2019 The story we have just heard, the Parable of the Good Samaritan as it has come to be popularly known, arises out of a discussion between Jesus and a Pharisee. A religious lawyer asks Jesus a question on the nature of the lengthy and complicated Jewish Law code. The stage is set by Luke with these words: “a lawyer stood up to put him to the test.” Well, it’s not the first time, nor will it be the last, that a lawyer lays a trap by phrasing a trick question. It was a leading question, the kind of question in which any kind of answer was likely to pose still further problems or lead to even deeper, more probing questions. It was, as we are told, a test quest

Just in case you missed it...

I want to begin this morning by reading something, which I would love to take credit for, but I must confess that it was taken from the newsletter of a church in North Carolina. The newsletter article reads: To make it possible for everyone to attend Sunday School and church next Sunday, we will have a special “No Excuse Sunday”. Cots will be placed in the foyer for those who say, “Sunday is my only day to sleep in.” Visine will be available for those whose eyes are red from watching too much television or staying out too late on Saturday night. Blankets will be furnished for those who complain that the church is too cold; and fans will be available for those who claim it is too hot. We will
