Proper 18

Proper 18

10 September 2023

The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) uses the caption "Reproving Another Who Sins." One might interpret this as an opportunity to publicly criticize someone, right? Well, not exactly. Upon closer examination of our relationship with Jesus this week, it becomes evident that Jesus desires us to take every possible step towards reconciliation and community building. It's disappointing for those seeking the chance to call out others, but it deepens our understanding of the upside-down nature of the kingdom that Jesus represents. Join co-hosts Karin Peter and Blake Smith as they journey alongside Jesus toward Jerusalem, encountering yet another illustration of the challenges posed by following Him. Nobody promised that the path of discipleship would be easy!
