3rd Sunday after Pentecost (Luke 9:51-62)
Gospel Message from Pastor William.
Jesus sends messengers (angels, in the Greek language) to an enemy village to prepare the way for him to enter, but the people do not show him hospitality. His disciples see this and want to destroy the village. That is, perhaps, a human worldly response, but it certainly isn’t a God’s kingdom response and Jesus says so. Jesus is interested in people following his way, The Way, and leaving behind worldly ways – even when it is difficult.
