Summer Gospels

7 July through 18 August 2019

7 July

Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

Jesus commissions harvesters and laborers to go where he would go and do what he would do.  Risking hardship and danger in exchange for the experience of great joy, they offer peace and healing as signs that the reign of God is near.

14 July

Luke 10:25-37

Jesus is challenged to explain what is involved in obeying the greatest commandment.  Jesus tells a parable rich in surprises:  those expected to show pity display hard hearts while th lowly give and receive unexpected and lavish mercy.

21 July

Luke 10:38-42

Jesus uses his visit to two sisters as an occasion to remind disciples that an important aspect of obedience is single-minded devotion to Jesus and his word.

28 July

Luke 11:1-13

In teaching his disciples this prayer, Jesus also reminds them to focus on God's coming reign, God's mercy, and the strengthening of the community.  Jesus encourages his disciples to child-like trust and persistence in prayer.

4 August

Luke 12:13-21

In God's reign, the "rich will be sent away empty."  Jesus uses a parable to warn against identifying the worth of one's life with the value of one's possessions rather than one's relationship with God.

11 August

Luke 12:32-40

Jesus encourages disciples to invest their hearts and live fully into God's reign.  Instead of facing life with fear, those who know God's generously are always ready to receive from God and to give to others.

18 August

Luke 12:49-56

Jesus delivers harsh words about the purifying and potentially divisive effects of obedience to God's call.  The way of the cross often leads followers to encounter hostility and rejection, even from those they love.

Blessings for Travelers

O God, whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: 

Preserve those who travel:

surround them with your loving care;

protect them from every danger;

and bring them in safety to their journey's end;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.
