"Therefore, Go..."

Luke 10:1-11,16-20

7th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

July 03, 2016

The Rev. Canon David Lovelace (TEC)

 

Jesus sent out seventy people in pairs empowering them to bring peace, to cure the sick and to proclaim the kingdom of God. Initially, he sent them to every town and village where he intended to go, saying, "The harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few...." I believe this particular story in the life of Jesus and the early Christian Church has implications for our own communities of faith today.

Frederick Schmidt: Four Reasons for Abandoning the Term, Post-Christian

The Rev. Dr. Frederick Schmidt (TEC)

From an historical or a cultural point of view the term 'post-Christian'may have some, very limited utility. But from a theological point of view and from the vantage point of the church’s self-understanding, I’m not so sure.

Paul Raushenbush: Becoming Wise: Krista Tippett’s Artful Adventure

The Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush (ABCUSA)

In her new book, “Becoming Wise: An Inquiry into the Mystery and Art of Living,” Krista Tippett synthesizes and shares what she has learned from hundreds of conversations with diverse thought leaders. The book is most remarkable for Tippett’s own voice that radiates from the page, reflecting the generous hospitality she brings to conversations with others — and sharing her unique and profound wisdom that resulted from these experiences.

Emily C. Heath: Plowing Ahead

The Rev. Emily Heath (UCC)

Every time we look back to what we've left behind, to the distractions that want us to give up and turn back, we risk losing sight of the one we are following.

Lillian Daniel: Childish Ways

The Rev. Dr. Lillian Daniel (UCC)

"When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways." - 1 Corinthians 13:11 If only that were true! I know a lot of adults who have not put aside childish ways. How else do you explain all those boats, fast cars and silly games on Facebook?

ON Scripture: Moral Leprosy (2 Kings 5:1-14) By Adriene Thorne

ON Scripture: The Bible

We cannot get to the healed and whole places God has prepared for us if we are traveling only with those who look and think and worship and dress and live and vote and love like us. Naaman’s healing comes together at the point where the fullness of human experience comes together. He learns to quilt.

Wayne Meisel: Why Summer Camp Transforms: Stillness in the Midst of Movement

The Rev. Wayne Meisel (PCUSA)

There’s often a language barrier of sorts between people who went to summer camp and those who did not. Those who did not are often confused by the way former campers talk about their summers, about how they grew up and how camp was a defining experience in their lives. Not high school, not the local congregation, not college... but summer camp. So what is it about summer camp that makes it so special?

Kenneth L. Samuel: Medicine, but No Cure

The Rev. Dr. Kenneth L. Samuel (UCC)

We have health facilities in just about every city. Why then are people still sick and suffering? Churches, synagogues, mosques and other faith communities are prevalent throughout most regions. Why then are so many living without hope and spiritual support?

Beth Birkholz: Walkabout

The Rev. Beth Birkholz (ELCA)

After I was finished with my call, I did something that had been a long time wish of mine, a bucket list kind of thing. I went hiking alone for a few days on the Appalachian Trail. Scott (husband) was calling it my 'walkabout' because I wanted to go think about the past eight years, as well as what might be coming in the future. And I also wanted to go clear my head after a crazily emotional few weeks, ending my call.

Roles of the Design Team

Dr. Marcia McFee (UMC)

In this excerpt from my new book, Think Like a Filmmaker, we’re examining the many different kinds of artists who are needed to work together on a film production crew. There are definitely some major similarities between a film design team and worship arts leaders! You’re invited to use the reflection questions at the end while you think about how your team works together in preparing and leading worship experiences each week.
