For June 23, 2019:
  • Faith Outside the Box by Bethany Peerbolte — Boxes are convenient. In the home, they make moving easier, they hide our clutter, and they separate one thing from another. But if the boxes we put people in are inflexible they prevent us from coming to know someone’s divine worth.
  • Second Thoughts: A Zero Sum Gospel? No Way! by Dean Feldmeyer — Life need not be a zero-sum game, despite how the swineherd feels.

Emphasis Preaching Journal

Wayne Brouwer
Raw power is stunning, but rarely is it warm and personal in the way we think of strength. Power explodes, while strength is channeled energy. Power unleashes force, but strength controls ability in very specific ways.

Someone has even defined the gentle concept of meekness as “strength under control.”

Legion

So he went his way, proclaiming throughout the city how much Jesus had done for him.” (v. 39b)

Good morning boys and girls,

I love seeing you here today. Are you happy to be here in God's holy house? (children respond) Great! I have a scary, wild story from the bible to share with you. Are you ready to hear it? (children respond)

The Village Shepherd

Praxis had a problem. It wasn't a problem shared by any of the other pixies, it was his alone. And it was often very embarrassing.

This week's text concerning the exorcism which set a captive Gerasene demoniac free is the only text appointed from Luke 8 in this year's lectionary readings. David Tiede points out that the material in Luke 8:3„9:50 sets forth the substance of Jesus' ministry in Galilee as Luke tells the story. There is a theme to the stories in Luke 8, and it is the theme of the power of God's word. We touched upon some of this material in Chapter 13 when we discussed the general theme of hearing and doing God's word.
