The Cranky Jesus

Luke 9:51-62

6th Sunday after Pentecost - Year C

June 30, 2013

The Right Rev. Stacy Sauls (TEC)

 

I think of this as the cranky Jesus.  It is one of those days when Jesus, as my grandmother was wont to say, got up on the wrong side of the bed.  It is as if he goes out of his way to say difficult things, things people, even good and decent people, will simply have a hard time accepting, to say nothing of actually doing.

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

On the topic of marriage, The Rev. Gunn writes, "A true wife delights more in her husband's companionship than in any success he may achieve. The apostle Peter offers excellent counsel to husbands; he says, 'Likewise ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honor unto the wife as being heirs together of the grace of life.' The husband who accepts this counsel has a happy wife and a happy home."

Marriage the Divine Ideal

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. John R. Gunn writes, "Marriage, as God intended it to be, is a union of two souls. It is a union so spiritual that it was used by the apostle Paul as a symbol of the mystical union between the heavenly bride-groom and his bride, the Church. Marriage is serious, more serious than death."

The Rev. John Gunn (other)

In this Episode of Be Still and Know, The Rev. John R Gunn discusses the topic of building a strong marriage. He writes, "physical attraction has its necessary place and romance has its value, but unless we have with these a genuine compatibility of temperament and some loyalty to common principles, the chances are that marriage cannot endure."
