This Is the Day

Most often in this gospel story we focus on Jesus’ pointing to himself as the subject of the Isaiah passage, as the messiah.  But perhaps at least as important is the indicator, “today.” Its immediacy is rattling and brings to mind a number of other situations in which people have waited and waited, and today is the day that the awaited comes to pass:  Martin Luther King’s letter from prison was such a call; and perhaps United Methodism’s upcoming conference on the inclusion of LGBTQ people is also such a call.   (NOTE:  Although the video begins with the Children’s Moment, once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The video of the entire service is available to watch.)
