(L, P) Before we are too harsh on the disciples for their lack of underp standing of Christ's impending death and resurrection, listen to this recent attempt to explain the plot of the movie "Deathsport."

In the future after the Great Neutron Wars reduce the Earth to rubble, cannibal mutants form a motorcycle attack squad to kidnap the leader of a race of supermen who now inhabit the planet."

Though there had been alienation and rejection from both sides in the past, the prophet describes us as God’s delight. That connection is also emphasized in Paul’s oddly graphic description of church folks as body parts — we need each other because we are not a living, breathing body if we are somehow separated.
When Jesus visited a wedding at Cana in Galilee, he showed that human disappointments matter to him and that he would be prepared to redeem them. This is a story about a young girl's bitter disappointment when she became a bridesmaid.
