No Turning Back

Speakers:Carol Cavin-Dillon
Topics:Sunday service

Today’s reading is from Luke 9, and it is the first of a months-long series of readings from Luke as Jesus moves toward Jerusalem.  Here Jesus invites certain people to follow him, and this passage lays out something of what it means to follow Jesus.  As he travels through Samaria he is not welcomed, and, when two of his disciples ask whether they should punish those rejecters, Jesus says no.  There are other curious exchanges in this passage, all of which are instructive about what it means to follow Jesus.  As followers of Jesus we are called to look at every situation through the lens of Christ, even if it means discomfort.   (NOTE: The video begins with the Children’s Moment, but once it starts you can scroll back to the beginning of the service if you want.  The entire service is videoed.)
