Time to move into the good news
Day: September 5, 2020
Special guest Beth Beall joins to discuss Jesus’ teaching about the process of reconciling wrongs within community from this week’s gospel.
In the first of a series of conversations about what we are doing with liturgy and music in the midst of this pandemic, we talk to Micah Walter
“Praying for the faith to release our loved ones to God, opening ourselves to accepting their choices, and disciplining ourselves to give our opinions only when asked are all difficult practices but definitely worth the work. And let’s add to our to-do list the removal of the subtle guilt trips, looks of disappointment, and easily readable body language that can also be powerful forms of control.”
“As much trouble as we have realizing that the writers of the Bible lived and wrote in very different times and cultures, we can’t assume that our understanding is the right one until we have checked to see what the first hearers would have heard and comprehended. Things that the people at the sermon on the mount understood would be very different today.”
