11th Sunday Pentecost

Pentecost 11.17 “Under The Table Savior” Matt. 15:21-28 We see a side of Jesus in this Gospel reading that makes most people uncomfortable. It’s a side of Jesus that we’re not used to seeing, that doesn’t get a lot of attention in our day and age. Jesus […]

10th Sunday Pentecost

Pentecost 10.17 “Why Did You Doubt?” Matthew 14:22-33 “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” A great question, that Jesus asks Peter! Now, Jesus can do the “Why?” questions because He’s the Lord and we’re not—just as He asked Job why he was making such […]

9th SA Pentecost

Pentecost 9.17 “Subdued” Matt. 14:13-21 We are so used to this story of Jesus feeding the 5,000 and the standard reading is that it is proof Jesus will give us whatever we want, that He does this simply as an act of kindness for a hungry crowd. […]

6th Sunday Pentecost

6th Pentecost 6.17 “Standing Under or Standing Over?” Matt. 13:1-8; 18-23 Our Old Testament reading is perhaps the most important passage in all the Hebrew Scriptures for the modern church and the most neglected. A large statement, but I think demonstrable. God tells us very simply how […]

5th Sunday Pentecost

  Pentecost 5.17 “Pirate’s Treasure” Matt. 11:25-30 “What things?” Would be my question (since I’m a man who starts with “What”). “What things has the Father hidden from the wise and understanding and revealed to little children, Jesus?” Context helps. Basically, it’s all the things we’ve been […]

4th Sunday Pentecost

Pentecost 4.17 “The Unfashionable What” Matt. 10:34-42 So, I learned this at my last Southeastern District Professional Workers conference (they are as averse to calling pastors pastors as they are to discussing actual theology at these things): that the big mistake I and some of my brethren […]

3rd Sunday Pentecost

3 Pentecost 3.17 “A Wonderful Life” Matt. 10 5a, 21-33 Jesus says “a disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.” And yet, and yet: I think today most all of Christendom wants, expects, nay, practically demands to be above the Master! Maybe […]
