In this episode Casey Wait shares a reflection Elijah's ride into heaven. In the Gospel reading, Jesus "determines to go to Jerusalem," the disciples ask to call down some "Shock and Awe" on cities who do not welcome them. How do we respond when the Good News is rejected? How should we respond? What is the balance between faithful prophetic witness and angry retaliation? Then Jesus gives warnings to a few who want to follow.
The Galatians reading examines the relationship between freedom in Christ and obligations toward others. Just last week we were declaring “There is no slave or free.” And now we are declaring that we are in fact “slaves to one another.” Which is it Paul? We are all free to love, but love is bondage.
