Letting Go. 15th Sunday After Pentecost. Luke 14: 25-33.
The power and mercy of God’s hold gives us courage to let go of that which holds us captive.
My Grandmother’s Gardens. 19th Sunday After Pentecost. 2 Timothy 1:5
“I am reminded of your sincere faith, a faith that lived first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice and now, I am sure, lives in you.”
The Persistent Widow. 21st Sunday After Pentecost. Luke 18:1-8
Perhaps God may be the persistent widow, persistent in seeking justice for all Her people, repeatedly coming to this world that doesn’t fear God or respect people, daily crying out for justice, making justice, bringing justice and not giving up on us and this world.
