Rob Wright: Up Ahead

Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

4th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

July 07, 2019

The Rt. Rev. Robert Wright (TEC)


Jesus wants to speak to his friends about the harvest. "The harvest is great," he says. He's talking about connecting with people. Sharing purpose with people. Gathering people. Some call this church growth, but it is so, so much more. More like joining God in God's purpose. More like helping people become themselves.

Big Enough

The Rev. Stephen McKinney-Whitaker (PCUSA)

Stephen McKinney-Whitaker says the mustard plant remains lowly--while it grows big enough for birds of every kind to find a home, it also reflects the humility of the kingdom of God, which stoops to wash feet, kneels by wounded strangers on the roadside, and so forth. It’s a helpful image for us as we seek to serve in the world as people of the kingdom.

Trouble at the Festival

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth (CBF)

The Rev. Dr. Dock Hollingsworth takes a compelling look at a dramatic encounter in Matthew between Jesus and the religious elite--and urges us to consider our own failure to produce fruit as Jesus' followers.
