The Questioning Crowd

Season After Epiphany 2019, Part 2 Worship Planning Series

Seventh Sunday After the Epiphany 2019, Year C

Both our culture and our church have become increasingly divided; we demonize the “other” and cease listening to one another. In the CEB, verse 27 begins, “But I say to you who are willing to hear: Love your enemies.” Jesus challenges the crowd to hear. Then he says the shocking phrase, “Love your enemies.” What?! He doesn’t just tell us to listen to them. We are to love them!

Offertory Prayer

Lord of Love and Compassion: How easy the road of discipleship would be if all you asked from us were the gifts we bring to your altar. How convenient would it be if we could write a check or swipe a card and leave here to live like so many do, focused exclusively on our own wants, needs, and passions? Remind us again, as we present our tithes and offerings, that the real challenge of discipleship comes when we leave this place, as you send us into the world to respond in radical love to those who would judge us, hurt us, and threaten us. We pray this in the name of Jesus, who loved and forgave, even as he was tortured and nailed to a cross. Amen. (Luke 6:27-38)
